Go for a walk and encourage children to observe all the sights, smells, and sounds of spring with this fun free printable. They can mark off the items they perceive with their senses as you walk.
Scavenger Hunt printable
Clipboard (for easy marking while walking)
As you walk, encourage children to use all of their senses to cross off items on the scavenger hunt list. They can hear a bird chirp, smell a flower, see a
spiderweb, or touch a tree with new leaves. For an added activity, you can
always provide children with a digital or disposable camera for them to capture their scavenger hunt findings.
This activity can also provide a prime time to impress in children respect for nature. We can observe all it has to offer. But we should leave it unchanged from when we first found it.
