A few weeks ago my husband and I took the boys on a Nature Hunt at one of the local walking trails not far from our house. We had such a great time exploring!
To encourage learning we took along a nature scavenger hunt that I created with common things that I knew we would see on the trail.
I was certain we would see at least one spider, one worm, one bird, one butterfly, some water, the sun, a tree, and more!
Now, if you want to take your scavenger hunt to the next level, here are some fun things that you can do.
Add a child’s magnifying glass to your hunt. My boys loved this! Matthew was searching for the littlest bugs he could find.
Add a nature book to your study. This way you can look up all of the things you find.
This is the book we used, Handbook of Nature Study.
Do your kids love scavenger hunts? This birthday scavenger hunt is a blast that is fun for the birthday child or an entire party!
If you would like to add another activity to your scavenger hunt, here is some handwriting practice with nature vocabulary words that go perfectly with the other worksheet.
You can print it here or by clicking on the image below.
When will you be going on a scavenger hunt with your kiddos?
