Winter Scavenger Hunt
If you are anything like me, sometimes you need a few tricks to get your kiddos excited about heading out and taking a walk. Typically I find that once my kids are all bundled up and out of the house, they have a great time, but sometimes we need the promise of a little extra fun to get us out the door.
I find that a super simple scavenger hunt usually does the trick. It gets the kids focused on looking for the items on the list and often we end up finding really fun things that are not even on our list.
This is a great way to observe and think about our surroundings differently. It’s fun to see what they notice and, sometimes I take the opportunity to ask some follow-up questions to help them think a little deeper. Other times, I just let them enjoy and explore!
