Outdoor Scavenger Hunt

Outdoor scavenger hunt checklist

Spring is underway, and it’s a great time to be outside breathing the fresh air, feeling the warmth of the sun, listening to the birds sing, and seeing the beauty of the trees and flowers. What a great opportunity for outdoor learning on the natural playground! The Adventurous Child Outdoor Scavenger Hunt (created by Lydia Bowers) is an excellent outdoor learning resource for young children. Go on a nature walk and have the children explore their surroundings. How many of the scavenger hunt objects will the children observe? Have the children document their results on The Adventurous Child Outdoor Scavenger Hunt sheets and share their findings. This activity is both fun and educational.
