Nature Scavenger Hunt Kids List
Exploration & Creative Fun in One

Print off a copy of this nature scavenger hunt kids
list
and then round up the kids and divide them into
teams for a scavenger hunt game that will challenge them to explore and be creative.

Winning is only limited to the imagination and we all
know that kids have the BEST imaginations going.


It is especially fun to have the kids explain their choices later because, trust me, some of their answers will be unbelievably creative. I am always amazed at how well children can stretch the limits of imagination and come up with very reasonable explanations for things that are nothing short of... in adult world... UNBELIEVABLE!

So, be prepared to judge some findings with childlike imagination and may the most creative team win!

Note: This scavenger hunt list doesn't have to be limited to a nature hunt. It works in a number of other venues, including in the house, at the mall, in the classroom...
