My two boys (ages three and fine) LIVE for a scavenger hunt. We headed downtown (with a friend and her daughter) for a little afternoon fun. My creative friend made DIY clipboards using cardboard from a diaper box and binder clips and each kid got a printed list and a pen.
We met at Waterfront Park and headed towards The Battery and back again (like a loop). With things to look for, our kids did an amazing job on our big walk and really had the best time! We made sure that they understood that this was a team scavenger hunt and not a competition (eliminate the possibility of tears) and once they found all of the items, they won a treat! Cake pops from Starbucks for kids and so.much.coffee. for the moms.
I wanted to share my list in case you feel like you need a reason to get out of the house too! If this list seems too easy for your kids, obviously feel free to make your own! I love any excuse to go for a big walk downtown and see our beautiful city. Hope you have fun with this!
