Today, we are going to go on a scavenger hunt! Luckily, we have a small woods surrounding our house but I think I might take them to a park as well to try to find some things. You can have a scavenger hunt wherever you are ... nature is all around us, even in the city!
Scavenger hunts are a great way to get the kids outside and engaged in a fun learning activity. Best of all, it's fun for all ages ... even parents! I print a few of my lists out (please feel free to print them out as well) and we run through the yard discovering and hunting.
If you and your kids haven't read the book, "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" by Michael Rosen ... it's about time! You will find yourself using the rhyming words over and over again on your hunt. The kids think it's hilarious and join in, 'We're going on a worm hunt, we're going to catch a big one ... What a beautiful day ...'
I love it, Savina will find one thing and hold onto it for the whole hunt while Gabe runs wild and brings back new treasure after new treasure putting them into the Scavenger Hunt Basket. When we are all done with the hunt, we go through our basket and talk about all the fun treasures we found that day.
Simply click on the Nature Scavenger Hunt list to print one out and start your very own scavenger hunt today! Have fun!!
