No touch football this Thanksgiving? No problem! Here are is a Zoom game that everyone can play! Just like with real-life games, it’s helpful if someone volunteers to be the organizer/leader in advance to help keep things moving!

TWO SCAVENGER HUNTS! ONE WILL HAVE YOU RUNNING AROUND YOUR HOUSE AND THE OTHER WILL HAVE YOU GOOGLING LIKE CRAZY!

IN REAL LIFE SCAVENGER HUNT:

Below is a list of items you might have in your house. You may be thinking, “Sure I have them, but who the heck knows where they are?” The winner of the scavenger hunt, that’s who!

• If you are the leader, don’t share the list until it’s time to play.
• Tell everyone that they have 11 minutes to run and find the items and bring them back to the screen.
• Every item found means a point for that team. Yes, a team (could exist of one person).
• The winning team is the one with the most points!
• Feel free to make your own or add to the list of items below.

1. A soup ladle
2. A 2007 coin
3. A two-dollar bill or a Susan B. Anthony silver dollar
4. Two different kinds of hand sanitizer
5. “I voted” sticker
6. Shekels (Israeli money)
7. A photo from anyone’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah (if it’s on your phone, that counts)
8. A copy of a physical newspaper
9. A Hanukkah menorah
10. Three shabbat candles
11. Rubber gloves (any kind)


VIRTUAL SCAVENGER HUNT:

• Each household is a team, or you can have multiple teams in a household. For this one, individuals might want to be their own team.
• Put all the groups on mute otherwise, they are going to tell the other teams the answers.
• If you are the leader, don’t share the list until it’s time to play.
• Tell everyone that they have 11 minutes to find the answers to as many
of the questions as they can. If they know the answer, great, if not, use google!
• The team that has the most right answers at the end of the 11 minutes wins!
• If you want, make up your own questions!
