Hershey Kisses Scavenger Hunt is an awesome 100 Days of School Activity Preschool! Tips and Tricks for planning a fun 100 day lesson.
I’m putting on my preschool teacher hat for this post to share a fun game I played with my class. This Hershey Kisses Scavenger Hunt was the perfect 100th Day of School lesson for my little four year olds.
Here’s a step by step guide to help keep this 100the day activity stress free.
100 Days of School Activity for Preschool: Hershey Kisses Scavenger Hunt
Step 1. Create a 100 chart with 10 ten frames.
This can either be drawn or printed. There are lots of free ten frame printables on Teachers Pay Teacher.
Step 2. Count out the chocolate.
This is a two day math lesson. So on the first day we dumped two bags of Hershey Kisses into a large container then added candies until each ten frame was full. This was a great time to review the concept of ten frames and count by tens with the class.
Tip: Don’t eat all the leftovers! Save the leftover candies for tomorrow’s hunt.
Step 3. Hide the Candies Around the Classroom
On the next morning I hid the chocolate throughout our classroom. You can get as tricky with this as you’d like. Most of my students are four years old so I placed the candies in plain sight to make the scavenger hunt easy on them.
Step 4. Time for the Scavenger Hunt!
As soon as my littles walked into the classroom they noticed all the goodness laying around. I reminded them the candy was a part of the game we were going to play and not to touch.
Oh my goodness! My class was beyond excited to hunt for all this chocolate.
But before the game could begin we needed to go over a few rules.
Hershey Kisses Scavenger Hunt Game Rules
- Be respectful of others. (No running or pushing!)
- Each student needs to find (specific amount) then bring them to the teacher. Set a limit of how many each student can find so everyone has a chance.
- Wait your turn to add candy to the 100 chart.
Amazingly, my little ones took this 100 day of school activity very seriously. They quietly searched the classroom and helped their friends who were having trouble.
In the end there were still four missing. Good thing we saved a few from the day before!
Wait a second!
This 100 Days activity would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day Party too. I know my preschoolers would love to play this game again!
