Nature Scavenger Hunts for Kids

Looking for ideas to keep your kids busy AND get them engaged with the natural world? Nature scavenger hunts are easy to organize and provide independent play for kids of all ages.

You can organize a nature scavenger hunt with just a few easy steps. 

  1. Make a list of items that your child could find in your yard or local park. Use images for younger children.

  2. Provide a basket, egg carton, or bag for the child to put found items.

  3. Watch your child explore and enjoy nature!
