It's BACK!!! Scavenger Hunt 2015!!

 Oh, SNAP!  It's baaaaaack!!! 

We've been getting a lot of questions on Instagram. Are we or aren't we this year?!

#instafun #getreadytogetsnaphappy #hashtagsfordays

So without further adieu...

The second annual Blog Hoppin' Scavenger Hunt is officially underway!!! 

Hey y'all!! It's Stephanie from Falling Into First and I can't wait to share all the details about this year's hunt with you!!!

It all began last year when we started thinking about ways we could all have some fun with our new favorite form of social media; Instagram. So we got snap happy. And hashtag happy. Pretty soon teachers from all over were joining in. They started getting their families involved. We loved it!!! And it turned into such a FUN way to meet new teacher friends on Instagram while embracing the laid back and carefree spirit that is summer break.

Check out these great highlights from last year's hunt.

                   And now we're ready to do it all again!

Here's some more exciting news. At the end of the scavenger hunt there is a winner. 

Are you ready to see this year's grand prize?!

This huge prize bundle includes:

*An iPad for you and your classroom

*$100 iTunes Gift Card to purchase apps

*A gorgeous personalized iPad case from 

I KNOW!!!! I want to win it too!!!

Now let's get you started.

This is NOT a photography contest.  We're focusing on QUANTITY over quality.  So use your cell phones, your tablets, or your cameras. They are all welcome!!

Also, make sure your Instagram account is NOT set on Private for the next 3 weeks. This way we can see all your hard earned pictures! If you prefer to have a private accounts you can always switch it back to private after the hunt.

It's true. Go ahead and delete your account at the end of the month if you'd rather not commit to another (or any) form of social media for the long haul. But our crew over here is without a doubt a bunch of Insta-addicts. So we're pretty confident you will want to stay the course. ;)

There are over 200 items for you to seek and find.

We don't expect you to find them all! Really. 

You'll need 90 points total at the end of the hunt. And, we've included an easy-peezy 30 Point Starting Bonus this year to get you started!!! {See details & rules below}

When you find something on the list: snap a pic & include a sign that says:


The signs help keep us all honest :) You can download ours below.

But do you really have to carry that sign with you everywhere you go??
Nope! You can go ahead and make your own. Check out these examples from last year. 

We're all about keeping it real here folks. Sometimes a simple DIY is the way to go!
But remember, no photo shopping in pictures of the sign or trying to sneak in old photos without the sign. In order to keep things fair we need everyone to be sharing pictures taken DURING the hunt. Hence the signs. #nocheatsplease

You'll need to label each picture, include the #bloghoppin2015 hashtag, and keep a running tally of your points in the following format: (___ / 90)  So let's say you took advantage of the 30 Point Starting Bonus. (#obvi) And you've just posted your third hunt picture. At the end of your post you would record your point tally like this... (33/90). That way you can easily keep track of how many points you've earned, and we can too!

Also, let's say you took 4 pictures in a day but you don't want to post 4 pictures in a row. 
You can use a collage app to combine them all in one picture, like this: 

And you'll still receive 4 points!! 

Whew!!!! That was a lot of information. But I promise, it really is easy. 

Especially once you get rolling.

{Download the rules and official list of items HERE.} 

The biggest reason we enjoy hosting this little hunt is getting to have fun with all of YOU!!!

We're SO excited to find new friends to follow and see all the fun things you find.

We'll be showing off some of your pics on our Instagram and Facebook accounts as we go, so make sure you're following along and don't miss a thing.

So what are you waiting for weekend warriors?! 

Let's get this party started!!!
