Bike Scavenger Hunt [Dependent on weather in your part of the country or plan it indoors.] The children meet at a central location with their bicycles. Divide into teams, with an adult sponsoring each group. Hand out sheets with scavenger hunt locations and questions. Each team rides their bikes to the places listed, records the answers, and then returns to the original meeting place. Teams should be sent in different directions, but covering the same locations.
Examples: Petal to Fremont elementary School (6600 Ralston Road). How many links are in the swing chain? Bike to the Cycle and Hobby Shop (6925 Ralston Road). How many bells are hanging over the door? Ride to the Hallmark store (7546 Oak). How many owls are on display in the front window? Go to the Smith Construction Company (7944 Oak). What two credit cards are displayed on their front window?
Hidden Treasure Search Boys and girls follow a set of clues leading to a treasure which could be treats or lunch. This event can take place indoor, outside, or both. After the treasure has been found, children can play organized games.
