On Pinterest, there are some pretty cool Scavenger Hunts for kids to do during these stay at home times. A couple of the outdoor ones are like pieces of art! Look at this one! I could frame it! she suggested twig pencils to complete this hunt. I found somehere! This one is simple yet also beautiful. The kids could make the binoculars we talked about on this post and go out and do their hunt!
But, what if you are on rainy day schedule? We've had a lot of rain this year here in Phoenix. How about you? Some of you still are in the midst of very cold weather! When I taught school, we always had to have things to do indoors during rainy days. Not only that, when I had school aged children at home, the house became cluttered quickly! That can be a real mood buster when everyone is stuck at home together. And finally, whether you are doing school work together or just having screen time and being bored, sometimes you just need a mental or physical break! So, because of all of that, I decided to come up with an Indoor Scavenger Hunt that would incorporate fun, learning, food, activity and clutter-busting all in one! I call it the Indoor Find and Do Scavenger Hunt.
I had some of my grandchildren try the Scavenger Hunt out for me. It was fun to get the pictures of them doing something that grandma sent them to do. I sure do miss being with them! If you are a grandma missing your grandkids, It is really a blessing to have the ability to talk to them and do things with them over social media. Sending them a simple activity like this scavenger hunt is a gift they will remember.
This isn't necessarily the kind of Scavenger Hunt that you would do all in one day and it isn't a race.
