Woodland Scavenger Hunt Printable
The best part about scavenger hunts is that they can be done individually or in groups.
Kids can pair up and compete as teams, or they can compete with each other individually.

On this woodland scavenger hunt, children will search for objects like nests, acorns, snails, squirrels, and more.
This scavenger hunt printable features images making it appropriate for nonreaders. Of course, big kids will enjoy it, too!
