In this simple but fun game, you hide paper acorns around the community and have participants search for them.



  1. Print some paper acorns (see attached pdf for a sheet of acorns) and hide them around the building.
  2. Ask everyone to search throughout the day and “squirrel away” as many acorns as they can.
  3. Award one point for each acorn, or write different point values on the back of each acorn.
  4. At the end of the day, give a prize to the person with the most points.
