Nature Hunt

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Children's Busy Book

This nature scavenger hunt challenges your kids to find all of the things on the list.


Materials

  • One paper bag per player
  • One list of natural objects to collect per player

Directions

  1. Give each player a paper bag and a list of natural objects (a bird's feather, a leaf, a smooth rock, a pine cone, a wildflower, and so on) to collect.
  2. You can give the same list to all the players or have each player look for a different group of objects.
  3. Challenge the players to find all the objects on their lists. Set a time limit: perhaps twenty minutes to find ten objects.
  4. The first player to find all the items on his list is the winner.
  5. A child may play this game alone or with others. For a group of children, pair up nonreaders with readers.
