Looking for something fun to do with kids while waiting in line at disneyland? I was! I found a lot of disney photo scavenger hunt ideas for online and some Disney scavenger hunts for really specific Disney items. But I wanted something easier for my young kids to do while waiting in line. So, I ended up making my own Disney scavenger hunts.
On my Disney scavenger hunts, I made the items to look for a little more generic, so they'd be easier to find and so we wouldn't necessarily have to go to a specific area of the park. For example, rather than looking for “Winnie-the-Pooh”, the kids look for a “bear” which could also be Brer Bear, a teddy bear on “it's a small world”, or Michael Darling's bear on Peter Pan. The kids can look for an actual item, a picture of the item, the item on a ride, a bush shaped like the item, a t-shirt with the item on it, etc.
There are two printable Disney Scavenger Hunts, each with 20 unique items. Some of the items on my printable Disney Scavenger Hunts:
- Bad Guy
- Number 3
- Mickey Ear Hat
Also, since I have a 5 year old just learning to read, and a 3 year old who can't read at all, I drew pictures for my Disney scavenger hunt. That way the hunt items, once explained, are easy to remember and look for independently. These Disney scavenger hunts are great for young kids. Older kids could race to see who can find all their items the fastest.
I did these Disney scavenger hunts with Disneyland Park in mind, but they will work just as well at Disney World's Magic Kingdom Park.
