Crafty Birds - Scavanger Hunt

During our scavenger hunt on St. Patrick's day, I couldn't help but think that there was a better way. The hunt was written in small text with about 30 things to find. While the girls had fun, they couldn't fully participate.

As we were running around hunting, I thought of a better way with pictures instead of words and stickers instead of 3 year olds trying to cross off little lines of text...

I drew 9 simple nature finds and laminated the pictures on card stock. Next, I stuck 9 dot stickers to the laminate so the girls could document their finds.

The girls LOVED it!

And they found almost everything on the hunt.

  1. That looks like a bunch of fun! Your illustrations are cute, could even be coloring pages!

  2. This is such a neat idea. Maybe we can have a scavenger hunt the next time you come here to the farm!!

  4. I like your hunt very much. And it is so international, without words! In my Dutch blog, about picnic-ing ( :( excuse my english...) I'll trackback (erratum:), I've directly linked to your Scribd-page. If you don't like it, please let me know.
