What can you find hiding around town?

Plan an old-fashioned scavenger hunt with a modern day twist. Instead of collecting specific items, take pictures! Set a time limit and see how many pictures you can “find.”

Use our list to get started and add some of your own.

Faith Talk:
While traveling, discuss the joy of finding things. Have you found something that had been lost? (a special toy) Have you searched for something and eventually found it? (the perfect card)

Why is it so rewarding when you find that special something?

Think of different activities where you “find” things. (ex. Where’s Waldo books, word search, the game of hide and seek) How much focus is required? What happens if you give up too soon?

Discuss the following scriptures. Share how you found Jesus for salvation and how He is with you at all times.

“If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”
Jeremiah 29:13

“Those who search will surely find me.”

Proverbs. 8:17
