Not So Sweet 16 Party Scavenger Hunt

by Denise
(Royse City, Texas)

For this "Not So Sweet 16 Party" Scavenger Hunt, I divided all of the participants into teams. I purchased bracelets that say "Sweet 16...If You Dare" in 5 colors and gave them to each birthday party participant.

Before the groups left to start their sweet 16 birthday party game, each received a card saying:

***Pictures or video must be taken for proof that you completed this party scavenger hunt. Be creative, daring, and outgoing. The more people you involve, the more points you will receive. Strangers may be needed to assist in a few.***

At midnight (since this was the Birthday girl's actual 16th Birthday) we pulled out a cupcake tower and sang to her.

It was a really fun Sweet 16 Birthday Party!

The more interesting and the realistic scavenger hunt is the Park scavenger hunt. I really loved the ending of this hunt. Making a people pyramid is a difficult task, but will be interesting and funny too. Thank you so much for providing these ideas.
