It’s Wednesday and that means it is time for another awesome glow game! Unfortunately storms have been ripping through our area so we aren’t getting much outdoor time this week. Hopefully we will have sunshine for Sunday but until then let’s teach you how to make and play glow-in-the-dark scavenger hunt. This is my favorite glow game so far because it is so versatile. You can adapt it for indoors, parties, vacations, and a ton of other destinations. All you have to do to change it up is make a new key and clues.

This glow-in-the-dark #scavenger #hunt is perfect indoors, outdoors, and on vacation! Click To Tweet
- Pack of Glow Sticks with Connectors (10 per player)
- 10 Different Fun Tapes
- Scavenger Hunt Printable (1 for the key and one for each player)
First, take the connectors out of each pack of glow sticks and open them up.
Next, choose a tape to wrap around one connector.
Continue wrapping your connectors with each different tape.
Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have a set of connectors for each player.
Add a sample of each tape to your scavenger hunt key sheet.
Next, write the clues on all of the player sheets.
- Also add the answers to your key next to the corresponding pieces of tape.
After your sheets are filled out, break your glow sticks and add your connectors.
- Try to keep like connectors grouped together to make them easier to hide for the game.
Now, hide your glow sticks in the places that correspond with your hints.
Last, give each player a scavenger hunt sheet and let the game begin.
Some Last Tips:
- Keep your connectors because you can totally re-use them in the future. That’s why we put the tape on the connectors instead of the glow sticks. Store them in a bag along with extra printables.
- You can use the same key for multiple games but updating with the new locations. There are multiple lines available but you can also use white-out if it fills up.
- Save time and money by playing the scavenger hunt with teams instead of individual players. This allows you to cover fewer connectors and use fewer glow sticks for each game.
So what is your take? Does this glow-in-the-dark scavenger hunt rocket to the top of your favorite glow games too? Don’t forget to print out extra sheets to take with you on vacation. It’s a great game to pull out if you get stuck in the hotel room. You can also turn it into an adventure and use it on a camping trip. Take a night hike full of glowy fun one night and then celebrate with some delicious s’mores. That’s definitely a camping win-win.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
