Penny Hunt

Scatter the pennies, and then send the children on a scavenger hunt chase!

Penny Hunt


  • Pennies
  • One cup or dish per player


  1. Have all the kids leave the room while you hide pennies everywhere- under cushions, in drawers, behind curtains, on top of books, and so on.
  2. Have all the kids return and give each a cup or dish.
  3. At your signal, have the players start searching for pennies.
  4. After five minutes, call off the hunt and have the players count their pennies.
  5. The player with the most pennies wins.
  6. Let the kids keep the pennies they find.
