Yesterday I had 6 kids to amuse for a couple of hours so decided to create a Nature Scavenger Hunt for them.

It kept them amused for an hour or so and got them outdoors and working together in teams.

They got into pairs and each team of two was given a list of items and a tray to put their finds onto.

Here’s the list of items they were asked to find:

  • scavenger hunt for kidsa feather
  • something beginning with S
  • a white flower
  • 3 different leaves
  • something coloured red
  • something edible
  • a rock or stone with different colours in it
  • a seed
  • a twig with a bend in it
  • something soft
  • something fluffy
  • a daisy
  • something green
  • something hard

Funnily enough, the only one they really had difficulty finding was a feather!

You can adapt the list according to the season and whether you have access to a park, woods or the beach.
