Sounds Surround Sound Scavenger Hunt

Sounds Surround

Sounds surround us everywhere. This scavenger hunt challenges teams to record specific sounds within a certain area and time frame.

The list below is perfect for a park or other confined location. Use this list or compose your own. (eg. For town hunts you could included things like cash register sounds and bowling alley sounds.) What sounds you choose to list will depend greatly on the location and boundaries of your hunt.

When you have finalized your list, copy one for each team. Divide your guests into two or more teams. Each team will need some kind of recording device. Set boundaries and a definite time limit. Also, decide beforehand whether any of the sounds may be made by team members or whether they must all come from an outside source. If you choose the latter, you may want to send one member of the opposite team along to verify the findings. Winner is the team who records the most sounds on the list or who completes the list first.
