How To Use the Scavenger Hunt Cards

The possibilities of using these woodland creature scavenger hunt cards are endless, and your printable will come with lots of ideas + instructions for activities.  Here are some of my favorites:

↠ Nature walk. Take the cards on a walk outdoors and check off each item as you find it. The perfect active family outdoor activity.

↠ Scavenger hunt. Hide the included picture cards, find them, and match them to the checklist.

↠ Sensory bin. Make a sensory bin by adding the picture cards and matching them to the hunt cards.

↠ Relay race. Little one having trouble sitting to learn? Then get them up and moving with a number relay race — running back and forth to match the picture card to the checklist.

↠ Card games. Create a deck of cards by printing multiple sets of cards and play card games like Go Fish, Slap It and Memory.

↠ Independent play. They make a great afterschool activity, or an addition to a morning basket.

Who These Printables Are For

Parents. If you’ve got a toddler, preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten kid and are looking for enriching activities for them instead of using screen time.

Montessori lovers. Perfect for creating hands-on activities at home or in the classroom.

Homeschool parents. Need to supplement a preschool or kindergarten curriculum? Add these to your morning basket or lesson plan.

Gift givers. If you’re looking for a special birthday gift, new parent gift, or baby shower gift that I can guarantee you no one else will be giving.
