Back Yard Scavenger hunt

If you have read my 100 free things to do with kids post then you may have say that I said do  back yard/living room scavenger hunt. You do not need to have stuff to hide. Just make a list of this for your children to find. Maybe get them a bag to hold the stuff. For older kids you can have them draw and write about what  they find if you want. You can make it so the learn new stuff of just have fun. Here are some thought about what you can find.
  • sticks-tell how many or how big
  • flowers-name a color
  • rocks
  • toys you have
  • water hose
  • bird-tell the kind
  • leafs-tell how many or what kind
  • weeds
  • animals-your pet or something that you see off ten in your backyard like a cat or bunny
That is all I can think of right now but you could add to the list if you have more ideas. This would be a great way to get your kids outside and moving. Here are a few great list that I found online.
Happy hunting.
