A Spring Scavenger Hunt

I've been wanting to plan more activities for my kids recently.  The weather isn't great here yet, but I still like to get them outside when I can.  So, I planned a spring scavenger hunt for Rex.

I gathered 12 random things from our yard and took pictures of them on white posterboard.  Then I put them into a collage on picnik.  This is what it looked like.  (You are welcome to use it, but depending on where you live, you might not have all the same things in your yard.)

I printed it off and taped it to the top of an empty egg carton.  That way he had a way and place to store each item as he collected them. 

We headed out into the yard to start hunting.

He was pretty into it.  I had to help with a couple of things, but he found most of it.  He was pretty proud of his new found treasures.

Have you done any fun scavenger hunts with your kids?

Thanks for dropping in!
