Before you start creating good riddles at, you must first organize everything for your scavenger hunt. Take time to make a list of good hiding places.

  1. Prepare clues.


If not even a single participant can answer the riddles you have prepared, your scavenger hunt will be a huge disaster. To avoid this from happening, make sure that you also prepare clues. When doing so, I strongly recommend that you use rebus clues. For those who are unaware, a rebus represents a word through photographs. For example, if the answer to your riddle is “plant”, show a picture of an apple (minus) a picture of an ape (plus) a picture of an ant.
