  1. Hen-tastic Themes:

Choosing a theme for your scavenger hunt can add an extra layer of excitement and make the event truly special. Here are a few interesting themes to consider:

a. Retro Glamour: Transport your hens back in time with a vintage-themed scavenger hunt. Incorporate classic elements like pin-up style clues, old-school photo ops, and iconic landmarks.

b. Destination Delight: If you're celebrating in a new city or country, utilise the local attractions and landmarks as part of your scavenger hunt. This will not only create a sense of adventure but also allow you to explore the destination in a unique way.

c. Treasure Island: Transform your scavenger hunt into a thrilling pirate adventure. Create treasure maps, hide clues in bottles, and set up a hidden treasure chest at the final destination. Arr, mateys!

  1. Clever Clues and Challenges:

The key to an engaging scavenger hunt lies in well-crafted clues and challenges. Here are some ideas to spark your creativity:

a. Rhyme Time: Craft poetic clues that rhyme to add a touch of whimsy and make deciphering them more enjoyable. For example, "Look for a celebration for a groom-to-be, and obtain an offering that can guarantee, a future of commitment that will stay through sickness and health, and if you play your cards a fortune of wealth" (Obtain a proposal from a stag party).

b. Photo Frenzy: Incorporate photo challenges into your scavenger hunt. Assign tasks like capturing the team performing a synchronised dance or striking a pose with a stranger. This adds a hilarious twist and creates lasting memories.

c. Teamwork Triumphs: Design challenges that require teamwork and cooperation. Include tasks such as solving puzzles, building structures, or even creating a spontaneous flash mob. Encourage hens to bond and support each other throughout the hunt.

  1. Hen-spiring Prizes:

Rewards, forfeits and prizes will motivate your hens to give their best and make the scavenger hunt even more exciting. Consider the following ideas:

a. Personalised Goodies: Create custom t-shirts, sashes, or trophies for each participant, highlighting top achievements from the hunt, such as funniest or most creative team. These personalised items can also serve as keepsakes long after the event.

b. Pamper Packages: Treat the winning team or individual with spa vouchers, manicure/pedicure sessions, or a relaxing massage. After a day of hunting, they will surely appreciate some well-deserved pampering.

c. Forfeits: If you want to go the other way, introduce some forfeits for underperforming, such as shots, unappealing cocktails, or acts or service. These memorable experiences will add an extra touch of excitement to your hen party.


A hens scavenger hunt is an excellent way to celebrate the bride-to-be and create unforgettable memories with her closest friends. By choosing a creative theme, crafting clever clues, and offering exciting prizes, you can ensure a day filled with laughter, adventure, and bonding. So, gather your hens, let your imaginations run wild, and embark on an epic scavenger hunt that will leave everyone with cherished memories for years to come. Happy hunting, ladies!
