Summer Break: Day 39

A good old-fashioned scavenger hunt!!
I added a bonus for finding things of different colors.
You can also have kids find things in the form of descriptive words: find something smooth, shiny, rough, spiky, flat, round, pretty, etc.
I sent the kiddos off with their list of items to hunt, a marker (for checking off "found" items), & a bag to collect their treasures.
You can set a timer for a more competitive & fast paced game too.
(Oh, & I feel like I should explain the "wasp nest"on their list. Daddy found a few empty ones, we checked them & left them lying around for the girls.)
Scavenger hunts never get old. I loved doing them as a kid---& still enjoy the hunt! There are a loads of items to hunt for & multiple themes of lists you could put together.
Happy hunting!

  1. Great idea. I love it....I'm all for keeping the kiddos busy all Summer long!

    Check out my giveaway for the Kids' Kitchen cards on my blog - ends June 30th and will ensure hours of entertainment (but maybe a little kitchen mess).


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Every time you do, I do a little happy dance. For reals.
