Active Game Using a Smart Phone
Here is a simple game that combines the fun of using a smart phone with physical activity. Print out the QR code hunt from GrowingPlay.com. Cut out the 8 QR codes. You will need to download any app that will read QR codes (just search the app store and some free ones will come up). Tape the codes in different locations indoors or outdoors. The object of the hunt is to find the QR code that states WINNER when scanned.
I recommend that you have the children find one code at a time. They must bring it back to the smart phone and scan it. If it is not the winner, they must return the code to its original location. Obviously if it scans as the winner you win the game!
You can give a small prize for finding the winning code.
