Backyard Scavenger Hunt
To set up this activity, print out one copy of the scavenger hunt for each child participating.
Clip the scavenger hunt to a clip board and hand each child a crayon or pencil.
Now, you’re all set!
Choose where your kids will do the scavenger hunt. You can send them out into the backyard to find as much as possible. If they can’t find everything on their hunt, expand the hunt to the neighborhood.
Can they find more items in a neighbor’s yard?
You can make this a reusable activity by laminating the scavenger hunt page and having kids use a dry erase marker.
