Spring Scavenger Hunt

Following a trail of clues to a Springy surprise is sure to delight kids of all ages!

Hide numbered clues around your house, setting your own boundaries for safety or convenience. For example, you can say "All the clues are inside." or "There are no clues beyond the garage door." Clues could be indoors and out, if the weather has turned nice.

For younger pre-readers, use picture clues showing where the next clue can be found.

For emergent readers, use a combination of writing and picture symbols or create a rebus puzzle to communicate the clue.

As children become more experienced readers, use written clues or riddles for them to find each successive clue.

The surprise at the end could be a spring picnic, a basket of flowers, or another fun activity to do together!
