Go on a treasure hunt!

In any season, a daily dose of vitamin D from getting outside does much to raise kids' spirits. In these uncertain times, outside is one of the last places we can go.

Need an activity to get your crew moving around the block, to the park or into the woods? Try your very own treasure hunt. Mother Nature provides the props, and they change every season. After you're back inside, the treasures you've collected are perfect for projects, for display and for studying the natural world. It's the perfect combination of art, science and education.

Use the arrows above the image for easy-to-find treasures to start with. Once you've found them all, maybe your kids will be inspired to create their own more challenging nature treasure hunts? Happy searching!
