Scavenger Hunt: Leaves

Nature Scavenger Hunt

March 26, 2020 Sarah Coggins

Last week as I realized we needed to start to self-quarantine due to the coronavirus, I put together a schedule for us to follow. My oldest needs to get some schoolwork done. I have to get work done. The three of us needed structure to keep the days moving and help us accomplish goals. One important add – I made sure to allot an hour in the morning and in the afternoon for outside time. These are times I head outdoors with them as well because we all need a break and a breath of fresh air. Most days I follow behind as they ride their bikes or scooters around the neighborhood. On Monday, I added a new twist to our stroll – a scavenger hunt.

Overall it was a rainy, dreary day, but we got lucky. The rain stopped just in time for our usual morning outdoor time. As we hurried out the door to make the most of it, I made a quick screenshot of the a scavenger hunt our local Parks & Rec Department shared online to show the kids and off we went.

We are fortunate to live on the edge of the city and have a touch of nature behind our home. I walked while the kids rode their bike and scooter – slowing down only to stop and search for another item on the list. They were excited to find 7 of the 10 items during our short adventure. Several they even spotted before I did! We headed home as the rain returned, but that didn’t end their interest. Both headed straight for the porch to look for more (birds, squirrels, etc) from a dry spot as soon as we were back at the house. It was a fun adventure and nice distraction for a bit.

Grab a copy here and give it a try yourself! How many items can you check off during a walk?
