With the forced isolation due to the coronavirus and multiple countries shutting down, it can be hard to keep your kids entertained. Especially since many parents are homeschooling, it's a challenge to find activities to do that are both fun and educational.
I was scrolling on my newsfeed on facebook and I saw that one of my friends from high school, Emilie, posted a photo of her kids holding a scavenger hunt sheet while outside sitting in a wagon. I told her that this is an awesome idea! I just had to blog about it. Which family couldn't use some creative ideas right now?
The best part about this nature scavenger hunt is that you can practice social distancing, get some fresh air and some exercise at the same time. If your kids are toddlers, you can put them in a wagon. Your babies can go in a stroller and your big kids can walk. Print out a sheet for the whole family or one sheet per child, or even just write out a list. Make it a competition for bragging rights if you want. The possibilities are endless!
Don't feel like taking a walk outside, or feel it's too risky? No problem! Make it a backyard scavenger hunt. It's the perfect way to get the kids outside while also keeping them in view and away from potentially sick people. It's also easier to keep an eye on them, and it's safer for them especially in a fenced yard. Here is the backyard scavenger hunt sheet.
