Youth Icebreakers Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt

Description This is the traditional scavenger hunt where participants are given a list of items to retrieve and bring back within a designated time limit. The Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt consists of a list of the Valentine’s Day related objects and some rules. Variations may allow photos of an object to replace the actual object or creative substitutions. The rules may forbid the purchase of items or restrict the participants from going to their own homes or malls to collect items. Various points are assigned to the objects based upon the difficulty necessary to obtain them.

Resources Valentine’s Day List for each team.

Preparation Make a photocopy of your list of items and rules for each team. Set a time for groups to be back then send them off to collect the items. Assign one adult as camera man / sponsor to be attached to each team.

Protecting Participants 1.

Don’t let any youth drive – put adults in charge and don’t allow horseplay on the roads like “Chinese fire drills”. Make sure everyone wears seat-belts or take major points away if they are caught on film without them on. You could also conduct the scavenger hunt on foot. You don’t want a participant killed while speeding during your scavenger hunts.




Participants must obey all laws and instructions from sponsors Limit the play area and place people at strategic locations if needed to ensure the safety of participants. Make sure each group has a mobile phone and contact numbers for emergency.
