A birthday scavenger hunt is a fun addition to any birthday party. It works just as well with a small family birthday gathering as it does with a large birthday party.
A birthday scavenger hunt can be fun for child’s party or for those who are a child at heart.
It can also be a great activity for children attending a grown up birthday party. It can keep them entertained and out of trouble.
