At BrightPath Kids they had immense fun doing a nature hunt that was self-contained! They were given a list of items to find and proceeded to locate them. It was good fun.
How to do a nature hunt
To do your own nature hunt you should follow certain steps:
- Go out in nature and gather items for your self-contained nature hunt. You can gather leaves, twigs, flowers, and so forth.
- Put each individual item found in nature in a tub or container in the room/backyard/self-contained environment where the kids will, “Hunt,” for them.
- Create a sheet with the various items listed that kids will need to, “Hunt,” for that you found in nature.
- Give the children the sheets with the items to look for in nature and then have them start exploring the room/backyard/self-contained environment until they have gathered everything!
