Plan a Nature Scavenger Hunt
Kids love the idea of finding treasure, and a scavenger hunt is a fun way to help kids notice their surroundings in a new way.
You can make your own scavenger hunt using clip art from the web or photos from magazines. This allows you to tailor the hunt to your habitat and season. We’ve done scavenger hunts in our yard, at a park and while on short nature walks. If you’re feeling short on time or creativity you can also go online to find hunts made by other people. Nature Rocks.org has two for different age groups.
