HOW THE INDOOR SCAVENGER HUNT WORKS
This scavenger hunt is simply a checklist. Kids can check off the items as they find them.
Kids can also make it a race. They can break into teams, each with their own copy, and see who can get done first.
Want to mix it up a little? Here are a few more ways to use this printable:
Turn it into a photo scavenger hunt. Kids can take pictures or videos of each item they find (with your help if needed).
Turn it into a treasure hunt. Grab a bag and go hunting! Each time an item is found, put it in the bag. At the end, kids will have fun going through their treasures.
Make it a sketching scavenger hunt. This idea is similar to the photo hunt, except kids draw each item they find. All they’ll need is a small notebook and a pencil.
Take it outside. If the weather gets better, send the kids outside! Each item on this list can also be found outside.
