Fun Additions to a Mall Scavenger Hunt
1. If you are having a slumber party / sleepover or a birthday party with games after the mall scavenger hunt here is a fun idea to add to a mall scavenger hunt. Instead of gifts ask guests to bring $5.00 - $10.00. Incorporate this money into the scavenger hunt and have one team buy prizes for games and the other team buy a present for the birthday girl. Add a few extra items to your list such as "cute jewelry", "makeup", "something cool", "something we all like" , etc. and give one team $20.00 to buy these items.
Make sure this is the team that includes the birthday girl. What the team doesn't know is that these items will be used for prizes later in the evening. Give the other team - the team that does not include the Birthday Girl - $20.00 - $40.00 and tell them to buy a nice gift for the Birthday Girl. Tell them it's also a secret!
2. Every time teams cross paths with the birthday girl they must sing "Happy Birthday".
3. Make the last item on the list a hint as to where the meeting place is ... then hide there and have the teams try and find you.
