Fresh air, the smell of flowers, new discoveries to be made…what’s not to love about outdoor scavenger hunts? Print out this free garden scavenger hunt and take it along with you as you look for signs of spring. You’ll also practice counting, measurement, color matching and more along the way.
This is a great spring activity for beginning readers, and pre-readers can work with a parent or reading buddy to do the scavenger hunt, too. Kids will search for a flower bud, leaves longer than their fingers, a plant the color of their shirts and more. Snap photos along the way and create a discovery journal to extend the learning once you’re back inside.
