If you’re looking for a fun, interactive screenfree activity, check out this adorable preschool outdoor scavenger hunt.
This one-page, print-and-go scavenger hunt for kids is a great way to engage your preschoolers on your next walk around the block.
Encourage them to hunt for the objects, mark them off the list, and celebrate when they’ve finished.
To prepare for the scavenger hunt, print out one page for each child who will be participating. Gather pencils or crayons for each one.
If you’d like to make this reusable, you can laminate them and have kids use dry erase markers to mark their findings. This way, you can use them over and over again.
Preschool Outdoor Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts are fun for kids of all ages. They love hunting for various objects and crossing them off a list as they do.
When I take kids on an outdoor scavenger hunt, I prefer to clip the pages to a clipboard which makes it easier to cross off the items they find.
You can have each child search individually, or you can print one for the family to complete together.
This particular scavenger hunt is perfect for preschoolers as all the prompts are pictures. There is no reading required.
