I don't know about you but my kids love scavenger hunts. This is a quick and easy way to put one together and also challenge your kids creativity.
Make a list of things you want them to find but keep it open-ended. For example:
•something with flowers on it
•something smaller than a tennis ball
•something bigger than your head
You can adjust the list according to your child's ability. So for an older child it could be:
•something square and bumpy and smaller than your fist
•something silver that moves
•something soft on the inside and hard on the outside
For a younger child try:
You don't need to have a particular object in mind - that's part of the fun, seeing what your kids can come up with!
P.S. To Betz, this was written with you in mind!
