Mall Scavenger Party -11yr- Puzzle Clues
Andrea in Burlington, Ontario CANADA
We did a mall scavenger hunt for my daughter's 11th birthday party. It is a lot a work, but well worth it. Be sure to call the mall or any stores that are involved since some of the store I spoke to could not participate. I also had to get permission from some store for taking pictures of their stuff (weird I know, but they are very particular).
All the girls were dropped off at the same entrance we would be having dinner at after the hunt (the restaurant is attached to the mall). Upon their arrival they had to pick a bracelett out of a bag in order to determine which team they were on. The elimated any moaning and hurt feeling fighting over teams. There were 3 teams of 4 and each team had a parent to supervise. We walked 10 feet behind them and just ensured they were not reaking havoc on the mall. We were also there to ensure they received the clues in correct order and that all the tasks were completed correctly with no cheating. Here are some things we are doing..mind you we are in Canada so some of the stores won`t work for some people.
Every team (I had 3 teams of 4) is getting a blank t-shirt and some fabric markers. They need to get 5 strangers to write a birthday wish and sign it the catch there are certain people they are looking for: 1. A brunette 2. A blonde 3. A person pushing a stroller 4. A person wearing running shoes 5. And somebody wearing a baseball cap. Afterwards I am having the each team also sign the shirt. They will also have a list of bonus points:
BONUS POINTS EACH ONE IS WORTH 1-3 POINTS AND CAN BE DONE AT ANY TIME THROUGHOUT THE GAME. AT LEAST 3 TEAM MEMBERS PICTURED WITH THE MAN HANGING FROM THE CEILING ABOVE THE FOOD COURT IN THE BACKGROUND.

Once they solve the clue they need to do a task at that particular store. It could be anything from taking a picture posing just like the manequin, getting a business card, telling me what`s on the sale table, all the girls taking a picture with a different hat on, getting a job application and so on and so on..LOL Hope this was of some help to you.
