5 Fun Scavenger Hunt Ideas


In Nature

A nature-themed scavenger hunt is an ideal choice for your next hike, beach vacation, or trip to the park. Have your kids look for items they might not be able to find in their own yard: certain kinds of leaves and flowers, animal footprints, seashells, pinecones, bugs, and creeks or bays. You can make the lists in advance, either by researching your destination for items you know your kids will see or brainstorming on your own, and then hand out pre-printed lists (include photos or clip art to let kids who can’t read join in the fun).
