If your toddler is full of energy like mine, you are so happy warmer weather is here! We’re making sure that we’re spending a lot of our time outside, but going to the park three times a day can get a little repetitive. I decided to come up with a little scavenger hunt for Henry to do to switch up our daily routine.
Creating the Scavenger Hunt List
Henry is only 2.5, so obviously it all had to be age appropriate. I did add in a few numbers and shapes to the list to practice these with Henry during our scavenger hunt. Below is our list; but don’t be afraid to add items that fit the area you’ll be in! Colors are a good addition too, unfortunately it’s still pretty colorless here in Minnesota right now!
The Hunt is On
I read the list to Henry and we headed down a path by our house to start our scavenger hunt. I let him lead and explore and every once and awhile I reminded him of things we were looking for. It was fun to see him find things, ask questions, and tell me about them.
Get the Most Out of Your Scavenger Hunt
Here are a few tips that made our scavenger hunt a success:
- Let your little one lead!
- Ask them questions about colors, sounds, texture etc.
- Remind them of the things you’re looking for, but don’t be afraid to stray from the list.
- If you have another sibling along, ask them to teach the sibling about what they find.
- Give encouragement and show lots of excitement!
