Benefits of a Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunts are a great, budget-friendly, and fun way to get our kids outside in the fresh air and sunshine, exploring nature and the world around them. These are the top reasons why me and my kids love them!

  • Builds Observational Skills
  • Exercise
  • Appreciation of Nature
  • Perseverance
  • Fresh Air
  • Low-Prep
  • Builds Team-Work and Social Skills (if done in pairs or teams)

Beach Scavenger Hunt

This Beach Scavenger Hunt is ideal if you are heading off on a beach vacation this summer, or if you’re lucky enough to live close to the beach!

You can download it and print it off in about 5 minutes and it can easily be slid into your beach bag, along with a pen, without taking up much room. I’ve found these work great when the kids are keen to be up and on the go after your picnic lunch, and you need a minute for your food to go down!

Backyard Nature Scavenger Hunt

If you’re looking for a fun, outdoor, summer activity for kids at home (or summer camp), this Backyard Nature Scavenger Hunt is for you!

Print off as many copies as you have kids and hand them out when they’re at a loose end! A fun way to get them exercising and appreciating nature.

Garden Scavenger Hunt

I’ve also made a Garden version of the Backyard Scavenger Hunt for those of us living in the UK!

It’s exactly the same as the backyard scavenger hunt, but uses the word Garden instead. I like to try to cater to preferences!
