During summer vacation I’m always looking for fun, healthy ways to get outdoors with my family. We all enjoy hiking, walks to get frozen yogurt and trips to the beach.

On one of our hikes,we thought it would be fun to create a Nature Scavenger Hunt. Here’s what I came up with:

Click on link to print: Nature Scavenger Hunt

What you’ll need:

  • Print out the Nature Scavenger Hunt or make your own
  • Colored pencils or crayons
  • Bucket or bag (in case you find some nature “collectibles”)

Be sure to customize your scavenger hunt to your local surroundings. Especially for younger children who will get tired quicker, suggest ideas of items that you know will be easy to find in your area. For older kids, to increase the difficultly, have a timed scavenger hunt.

Now get outdoors and have some fun!
