Outdoor nature hunt
For the budding naturalist in your home, this is a great way to connect your kids to the outdoors as well as teach them about identifying Northwest plants. Create your own list with things that are already in your yard or use this free printable from Clean and Scentsible for a general scavenger hunt. The blog post includes specific items such as pine cones and rough leaves to teach texture, as well as a piece of litter to encourage conservationism. Another practical idea is to print the checklist on a paper bag instead of using an Easter basket. Once the items have been found, reward hunters with Easter treats.
