Outdoor Alphabet

Searching for an outdoor alphabet can help kids become better observers and create a lot of hiking fun.

What You'll Need:

  • Family or friends

How to Play Outdoor Alphabet:

Step 1: As you hike a trail with your kids and their friends, have them call out the letters of the alphabet one by one.

Step 2: If one of you sees an apple, that person will say, "Apple" out loud, and the group moves on to the letter "B." If someone sees a bug, the game moves on to the letter "C." If someone sees a canary, you all move on to the letter "D."

This is a team game full of team spirit, so cheer each other on. Before you know it, you'll be where you wanted to be -- and you will have had lots of fun along the way.
