Halloween Scavenger Hunt for Toddlers (Free Printable)

Enjoy the run up to October 31 with this Halloween Scavenger Hunt for toddlers. Strolling the neighbourhood and checking out all the cool displays is so much fun and this free printable is a great way to give your kids an activity to do as you walk. 

Some of our neighbours spend hours getting their houses ready and we are lucky enough to have a full-on haunted house (garage) just a couple of doors down.

To make our walks around the neighborhood even more fun, I created this easy Halloween scavenger hunt to encourage the kids to really pay attention to their surroundings and also learn some new vocabulary.

This simple Halloween scavenger hunt adds some excitement to the weeks before Halloween and is great for toddlers and bigger kids.

It would be a fun Halloween party game or day care outing.

Make the Halloween scavenger hunt even more fun:

  • Get older kids to take photos of each find and compare the best ones afterwards
  • For older kids, make it a timed event in teams with prizes for the first team back
  • Younger children can tally up how many of each item (cats, bats etc) they can see on one street
  • Take a trip to a new neighbourhood to make the hunt more exciting and check out new displays
  • Do the hunt on Halloween night while Trick or Treating

What do you need for the hunt?

Apart from the printable hunt list, (you can download it below) you don’t need much to do the scavenger hunt but a few extra accessories could make it extra special, especially at a party (this could form part of the loot bag).


  • Mini flashlights – this pack of 12 mini flashlights on a rope from Amazon is cheap and would be great as a party favor.

The great thing about this scavenger hunt is that you can adapt it to the ages and number of children. It would be equally fun with a group of 8-year-olds as a fun activity with one 3-year-old.
