Here are a few of the cards in our set
Scavenger hunts are a great activity for kids of all ages (and adults too).
You can customize them to fit a theme, making them great party favors. Or, make a few sets to use as last minute gifts - the possibilities are endless. These durable cards can be used again and again - I keep a set in my purse for some spur of the moment fun!
If you would like to make some cards of your own, here is a brief how-to:
- items to hunt for (for these cards we simply gathered items from around our neighborhood)
- white poster-board
- a nice spot with filtered sunlight (near a window or outside)
- a photo editor - if you don't have a great one, check out Picnic (free).
Place your items on the poster-board and photograph them up close. Look for settings on your camera that allow you to capture close-up detail (usually represented with a flower symbol).
Edit the photos to your liking (perhaps adding words too). Just be sure to leave enough space at one end for the hole punch. Then re-size them to no larger than 874 x378 pixels (300dpi).
Then go to MOO mini cards and upload images. I ordered the pack of 100 (making five sets of 20 cards). The cards are very durable and great quality.
The last thing left to do is string them together. I simply punched holes and strung them together with some twine and a wood bead.
