This name hunt game is very easy to create. My kids and my niece enjoyed it so much they asked to do it a few times. Use a different colour for each child, rewards can be given to the first person to finish their name.


  • Coloured Paper
  • Laminate Paper


  1. Print out children's name on 2 pieces of colour paper using the same shape around each letter.
  2. Laminate both pages.
  3. Cut around the letters on one of the pages.


You could use this for lots of different occasions and just choose the theme as your shape. Lightening McQueen shape for a Birthday Party.
