    This is a great idea! I am having a Halloween party sleepover this year for just the Grandkids. Want mom & dad just to drop them off in costume and plan on creating fun foods, crafts and bought the dvd Spooky Buds to watch but this would fit it really great... Ages 9 to 3.. Any ideas you can lend for the wee folks for a scavenger hunt? I think I can modify some of what you mentioned..

    You absolutely can! Since i am doing it this year with 7 kids age 4-10 I combined the three previous team clues and made it into on much longer game. The prize will be Halloween pails filled with? I haven't figured THAT part out yet.

    This is the invitation I am going to send two weeks before to hype the kids up:

    The hour draws near -and this party comes but once a year.

    Dear oh dear -I broke a mirror , Walked under a ladder to boot!
    Sorry but your home is now bewitched, We need to find some friends to recruit!

    The evening will bring a dire situation to light,
    And some will receive their deserved reward; a heart-stopping fright!
    We are sure to enjoy the antics of those brave enough to show,
    All Hallow's Eve will be here soon ; soon ; Be here before you know........

    Use the clues above you think will work and that you can make/get the props for -

    I've added the following clues to mine this year

    Over the river, and through the wood-
    now Grandmothers cap I spy!
    Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?
    Hurrah for the pumpkin pie!

    (The answer is Inside the pumpkin pie of course)…….

    Small Card on top of the pumpkin pie-
    Don't be afraid of guts and goo… For in this pie is your next clue



    I can be quick and then I'm deadly,
    I am a rock, shell and bone medley.
    If I was made into a man, I'd make people dream,
    I gather in my millions by ocean, sea and stream.

    (The answer is Sand - so that should lead them to their sandbox)



    Down below the shining moon
    Around the trees, a sacred gloom
    Running with the midnight sky
    Knowing the thing that makes you cry
    Night is full with my essence
    Eternal light betrays my presence
    Soaring through my endless task
    Shadows are my faithful mask

    This is really for the older kids.. they did an amazing job figuring out one of the pirate hunt clues.. so I am testing them with the above clue to see if they can remember. The answer is DARKNESS and its the first letter of each sentence ( read down like a crossword puzzle)

    I think having them look for the potion ingredients (eye of newt, toe of frog ) would still work out great, you just need to make the riddle less difficult.
    How clever are the kids?

    Those are some great ideas!! I am pretty sure 3 of the 8 could figure them out, then the rest will follow. And to make sure that the older ones are sharing the oooeee gooie fun with the lil ones I want to try to come up with clues that each child would have to collect their own.. I dont' know maybe I am pushing it there!

    No, you are not. In fact I embrace that idea.

    Lets say for argument sake they take the time to find all the Witches potion clues as a group. Once they find it all , do a riddle that will leas the kids as a group to the cauldron. Now.. Inside the witches cauldron you can then have 8 envelopes with 8 names that have a riddle you chose for their skill level.

    I'll give you an example -

    I have no voice and yet I speak to you, I tell of all things in the world that people do. I have leaves, but I am not a tree, I have pages, but I am not a bride or royalty. I have a spine and hinges, but I am not a man or a door, I have told you all, I cannot tell you more. ( a book)

    *****

    This thing runs but cannot walk, sometimes sings but never talks. Lacks arms, has hands; lacks a head but has a face. What is it? (a clock)

    *****

    The more I dry, the wetter I become... (A Towel)

    *****

    I don't go out and play, I just stay home all day, I'm nice - you might agree, but mostly your feet just rub me... (A Door-Mat)

    *****

    If you were 'able', you'd add a 'T'... (A Table)

    In order to rope the team back in to finish together.. each child once they solve their riddle, the prize is either a puzzle piece that has a new riddle for the group or maybe part 1 of 8 of a picture you choose.......

    Below is the clues i worked on that I made with my sisters in mind. They are the kickoff of the evening and they dont know it. I have 2 nephews that are very clever.. so they might actually answer before my sisters.... We'll have to see.. I know you said you are focusing on the kids.. a few riddles in here might be appropriate for older ones.


    You will know that I am coming
    From the jingle of my bell,
    But exactly who I am is not an easy thing to tell.

    Children, they adore me
    for they find me jolly,
    but I do not see them when the halls are decked with holly.

    My job often leaves me frozen,
    I am a man that all should know,
    But I do not do business in times of sleet or ice or snow.

    I travel much on business,
    But no reindeer haul me around,
    I do all my traveling firmly on the ground.

    I love the time of Christmas,
    But that's not my vocational season,
    And I assure that is because of a sound economic reason.
    ~
    Discovered in Africa, I spread like a tide
    To become a hot staple known the worldwide.
    A necessity to some, a treasure to many,
    I'm best enjoyed among pleasant company.

    Some like me hot and some like me cold.
    Some prefer mild, others only bold.
    Some take me straight, while some like to savor
    My essence to which has been added a flavor.

    So put down your cares and sit awhile with me;
    I'll send you back refreshed and full of energy.

    ~

    You are on your way to visit your Grandma, who lives at the end of the valley. It's her birthday, and you want to give her the cakes you've made.

    Between your house and her house, you have to cross 7 bridges, and as it goes in the land of make believe, there is a troll under every bridge! Each troll, quite rightly, insists that you pay a troll toll. Before you can cross their bridge, you have to give them half of the cakes you are carrying, but as they are kind trolls, they each give you back a single cake.

    How many cakes do you have to leave home with to make sure that you arrive at Grandma's with exactly 2 cakes?

    ~

    Every dawn begins with me, At dusk I'll be the first you see,
    And daybreak couldn't come without, What midday centers all about.
    Daises grow from me, I'm told, And when I come, I end all cold,
    But in the sun I won't be found, Yet still, each day I'll be around.

    ~

    Well hello there, new friends, It's a pleasure to meet you
    I wonder if you'd indulge, The unique way I greet you

    You see, I'm a player , Of a great many games
    So instead of just telling you, Maybe try guessing my name

    Now to make this more fair, I'll give you some clues
    For there are so many ways, That my name is used

    My family is royal, Though as has oft been spoken
    The headgear I once wore, Has since become broken

    In my more playful moods, I might hide in a box
    Or just run around, for I'm nimble as a fox

    But please don't misjudge me; I'm not some lame slacker
    I can work hard with a hammer To become a road cracker

    If I see you in trouble, At the side of the road
    I'll be right there to help, If it eases the load

    I'm brave in the darkness, When it's black, call my name
    But I get rather scary, When I'm high on a plane

    All right, one last clue, Then let's call it a night:
    I'll give you a grin As an October light
    So now that we've ended, This fun guessing game
    Now can you tell me, Just what is my name?


    1. Ice cream Man
    2. Coffee
    3. The Number 2
    4. The Letter D
    5. Jack - now you can use this for Say.. Jack Skelleton - Nightmare before Christmas if you like.

    Also - For riddle # 3 & 4 I created simple posters that you can easily frame and set around the house hiding the clue in the frame or behind the frame if you are going to hang it on a wall

    To find the all the clues you must look in the right place

    Shiver me Timbers!
    Stick to the Facts!
    And always remember-
    Opposites attract

    That was too easy, we must have a show!
    It will become harder the farther you go!
    So all stick together, do not shed a tear…
    For your next clue look carefully at the picture you’re near
    (I’m not sure if I will hang pictures around the house for them to carefully look at or wallpaper so either way, I will change this some)

    3. Over the river, and through the wood-
    now Grandmothers cap I spy!
    Hurrah for the fun! Is the pudding done?

    Small Card on top of the pumpkin pie-
    Don't be afraid of guts and goo… For in this pie is your next clue

    I'm read from both ends, The same either way. What am I?

    5. So you think this is easy? Well, it just may become hard -
    Read the next clue - it’s on the attached card.

    "Stiff is my spine and my body is pale, but I'm always ready to tell a tale."


    (The answer is a Book and we'll have to pick a good book to hide it in. Maybe Legend of Sleepy Hollow)

    7. One little, two little, three little witches,
    Fly over haystacks, fly over ditches,
    Slide down moon beams without any hitches,
    Hey ho Hallowe'en's here!
    Horned owl's hooting, it's time to go a-finding,
    outside deep in the shadows, a black cats a- hiding,
    With gay little goblins, sliding, gliding,
    Hey ho Hallowe'en's here!
    (I have a black cat I made out of wood, from Martha Stewarts Halloween )

    8. There's a goblin as green as a goblin can be.
    Who is sitting outside and is waiting for me.
    When he knocked on my door and said softly, "Come play!"
    I answered, "No thank you, now please, go away!"
    But the goblin as green as a goblin can be. Is still sitting outside and is waiting for me……

    ( I have the Goblin already)

    9. Jack-o-lantern pumpkin head -He is a fearful sight.
    If I were you, I'd be afraid, To meet him outside in the night.
    By day he is a pumpkin, But just you wait 'til night.
    When out of eyes and nose and mouth There shines a yellow light
    (I need to carve a jacko' lantern)

    10. The stars were gone, The night was dark,
    When something strange took place,
    I could not quite believe it, There was a gruesome face.

    I don't believe in zombies, But that is what I saw,
    A skeleton with corpselike face, I viewed it with awe.

    11 . Out in the dark and maybe under a tree
    Look for a graveyard then a skeleton key,
    Don't be afraid of all hallows night,
    not all ghosts choose to give you a fright!
    (I have the tombstones and the skeleton key )


    12. I can be quick and then I'm deadly,
    I am a rock, shell and bone medley.
    If I was made into a man, I'd make people dream,
    I gather in my millions by ocean, sea and stream.

    13. Remember always To smell the roses,
    If you dig here Hold your noses

    14 Boo!
    B is for broomsticks witches to fly,
    O is outrageous spooks that go by,
    O is for orange pumpkins so bright,
    These are the signs of a Halloween night
    (I have the ghost we can hang on a tree or something)


    15 Don’t despair; the END is very NEAR….
    For a treasure hunt like this, you don’t show any fear!
    Everyone around you is helping you search …–
    Now go climb up a staircase where the bats like to perch.
    (I have about a dozen bats and black sheets to help make a bat cave)

    16
    Down below the shining moon
    Around the trees, a sacred gloom
    Running with the midnight sky
    Knowing the thing that makes you cry
    Night is full with my essence
    Eternal light betrays my presence
    Soaring through my endless task
    Shadows are my faithful mask

    17. Congratulations! You’ve won the Hunt
