For instance, if you are five years old, find five items on the list. If you are ten, find ten items. If you are working in a group, find at least 12 items. You have until 6:15 pm to complete your hunt and bring your items and list to the prize table. One prize per team member. No prizes will be given after 6:15 pm, so get ready, get set, begin!
