Sometimes the easiest ideas for your Scavenger Hunts are the hardest to think of! That’s why we have decided to make this blog entry with some easy to use Scavenger Hunt ideas that are guaranteed to be fun as well!

Most of these ideas will be used in conjunction with the Photo/Video Challenges in the MooveTeam system and therefore are also very easy to grade and fun to incorporate in the post-Scavenger Hunt festivities slide show.  The photos and videos taken in the mooveTeam app are automatically downloaded to the server for this reason!

OK! Here is a list of the easy ideas, enjoy!

Here are some Scavenger Hunt items that can be used with the photo challenge in Mooveteam:
