Mall Scavenger Hunt

For my son's 13th birthday, I created a photo scavenger hunt at the Mall of America.  This would work equally well at any mall near you!

Easy Mall Sign Scavenger Hunt

Note:  Go EARLY!  Most malls open even before some of the stores.  This will be a quiet time to run around the mall, with just the "walkers" for company.

What I did:  I went to the website for the Mall of America and looked at the site map with store names and locations.  I wrote a few clues for stores with easy names and mixed them up so we'd have to walk between different levels and sections (wear comfortable shoes).  On his birthday, I gave him one clue.  He had to figure out the name of the store and then walk there for a picture.  When he accomplished that, he would get an envelope with money (do you see a pattern with my kids?) and the next clue.  This is what I used:

A.    A trace of an organism from a past geologic age (such as a skeleton or leaf imprint), embedded and preserved in the earth’s crust.

B.    One of these a day, helps keep the doctor away.

C.    A person who trains athletes and calls plays in a game.

D.    You cross this to win a race.

E.    Our best family vacation was a magical experience!

F.    “A Wild Place to Shop and Eat”

G.    A place where elderly sailors might shop.

H.    A place where you can “build imagination!”

I.    Clay likes these shoes…

J.    Let’s eat!  The chicken place we went with Cindy!

Everyone had fun with this one...try it!!!
