free nature scavenger hunt ideas for kids printable

This Nature Scavenger Hunt Printable is perfect for those outdoorsy type kids. I spent over an hour with my 3 year old wandering the neighborhood looking for each item. Not only was it a fun mystery game for my little one, but boy did she sleep well that night. Have you heard…fresh air = a good sleeper. Have fun searching for these outdoor items!

I also, recommend laminating the scavenger hunt so you can use it over and over again. Use a dry erase marker to cross out the items you find and then simply wipe it down to start again.

Go ahead and laminate

I recommend laminating our scavenger hunts. Why? Laminating gives the scavenger hunts a bit more permanence. You can also use dry erase markers to cross off the items you find during your hunt! So, when you’re done hunting you can easily wipe off and use the scavenger hunt sheet over and over again without reprinting.

I don’t use anything fancy or complex, just a simple and easy laminator. This is the laminator I use and recommend.
