Spring has sprung! The flowers, the new green leaves, little sprouts pushing up out of the ground, getting my hands dirty planting… Spring is just lovely all around.
We are lucky enough to have some beautiful spring break weather to enjoy and the kids have been spending all day outside. But what if some days they do need a little encouragement? Well that happens too.
To provide a little bit of that spring encouragement, we have the Spring Scavenger Hunt! This free printable includes all the spring favorites like flower buds, butterflies, and rainbows. And the best part is you can just hand out the pages and let them go!
These real photos are easy to identify even for my youngest 2 1/2 year old but still fun to find for my 7 year old. So it has been approved for all ages.
Extend the fun
Want a little something extra to go with you spring scavenger hunt? Here are a few ideas.
- Build your own birdfeeder to attract those spring birds
- Have a discussion about you might see these items in the spring more than other times of the year
- See that black/yellow/white stripped caterpillar? It will eventually turn into a Monarch Butterfly. These beauties are losing habitat and decreasing in number. You can create habitat for them right in your own backyard by planting Milkweed, the only plants that Monarch caterpillars will eat!
