Spring Scavenger Hunt


Spring Scavenger Hunt

[20 Minutes]

Isn't it time for a break and a bit of fresh air?Invite your child to go with you on a spring scavenger hunt to have fun and learn about spring.

What to do:

  1. Invite your child to go outside with you and to see if he can find the things you name.
  2. Can he find a flower? Can he find grass? Can he find another flower like the first one?
  3. Does he see a bird? Can he hear a bird? Where does he think it is?
  4. Let your child smell a flower, feel the damp grass, and splash in a puddle!
  5. Show him the tiny buds on a branch and a caterpillar or insect.

How to use:

  1. At another time, let your child plant some seeds to watch, water and love as they grow.
  2. Help him learn colors by saying, "find a red flower, green grass, and so on."
