Are you tired of social distancing? Are the kids driving you crazy with all their penned up energy and the constant demand for snacks and entertainment? Cabin fever is real. Let’s go on a scavenger hunt!
Although it will be a while until we can socialize again, here is the good News: you can go outside and enjoy nature! It is good for mind and body and a fun experience for kids. There is a lot to discover in the woods, the local pond, even in your own neighborhood.
Take your kids, take the dog and go on a scavenger hunt. I made two FREE printables, one for your neighborhood walk, the second for the great outdoors. Print them out and take them with you. Don’t forget a pen to mark your findings on the paper.
Your littles will have fun exploring, get some fresh air, and might even learn a thing or two.
Here is how it’s done:
Print your Scavenger Hunt list.
Take a pen with you.
Go on the hunt for the items on your list.
Whenever you find an item cross it off the list.
Each item is also pictured to make it easier for little ones to identify what they are hunting for.
The lists are intended for small children but a scavenger hunt can also be fun for older kids or adults. You could make it more difficult by having to look for a red car or a certain dog breed.
If you want it to be extra special take along a magnifying glass or binoculars. This magnifying glass from Melissa and Doug is great because it is shatterproof:
