If you’re looking to mix it up, here are a few different ways we use the scavenger hunt printable:
- give them a colored pencil and go: a little direction goes a long way and the kids have fun searching for all the items
- a prize at the end: whether it’s the afternoon snack or a new coloring book, a little motivation to finish helps get them out the door when they aren’t eager to leave
- pack a snack and make it an adventure: hand them an afternoon snack packed up in a sack along with their scavenger hunt and tell them to go brave the great outdoors
- make it a secret mission: fold it up and put it in an envelope with their name on it and turn it into a secret mission.
