A backyard scavenger hunt


Dino Boy had a big idea recently
He wanted to go on a….Scavenger Hunt!! 
{I’m not even sure where he got the idea} 
We took a colour approach first up…
…which was perfect for the end of Spring



It was lovely watching him flitting around the backyard…
exclaiming about different colours and what treasure he had found!


Even Wookie got in on the action…
excited by the searching and seeking behind things, under things and all around



And what lovely things they were!
Happily added to our nature table… or Dino Boy’s treasure collection *smile*

Happy days,

    This is a lovely idea and easily adaptable for the younger crowd around here 🙂

    Can you believe we’ve never been on an outdoor scavenger hunt? Crazy, I know 🙂 And I know how much Jack would love it and Sarah knows a few words too now. Maybe we should just go. It’ll be fun 🙂

    We love a good back yard hunt, we were going to do one this morning but got side tracked by playing schools 🙂

    Our boys are always drawing maps for each other to discover things in the garden – but I’ve never considered suggesting colours. Great idea!

    Your garden is just so full of colour! Isn’t it great seeing where kids ideas take them! I think we will have to do a backyard hunt before the holidays finish up.

    Lovely! Spring seems quite a way off here in the UK – can’t wait to get outside with the kids more.

    This looks like a wonderfully fun activity. That little wooden box is so cute! Is it handmade? Thanks for sharing on Eco Kids.
