This printable spring scavenger hunt is a fun way to motivate the kids to get out and explore. Like my winter scavenger hunt, this list is full of items kids can find around the neighborhood.
How to Use the Spring Scavenger Hunt
The spring scavenger hunt is easy to use. You simply search for the items on the list and check them off as you find them. There are several ways to make the hunt more fun though. Here are a few ideas:
Take Photos of Found Items
Kids love to take pictures. Arm them with an inexpensive camera. Or, better yet, accompany them and take pictures of them WITH the items with your own camera or smartphone.
Make it a Contest
Give each person or team their own list and have them compete to find the most items in a set time period. The winner gets a prize and everyone enjoys a glass of lemonade together after the game.
Have Tiered Prizes
If you don’t want to have players compete against one another, you can instead create tiered prizes.
- Find 1-10 items, we’ll go on a bike ride after the hunt.
- Find 11-20 items, we’ll make rice krispies treats together.
- Find 21-30 items, we’ll have a picnic.
- Find all 33 items, we’ll go miniature golfing on the weekend.
These are just suggestions to get your creative juices flowing. Choose activities and rewards you know your kids will enjoy.
Use it as a Road Trip Activity
If you’re traveling for Spring Break, give each child a spring scavenger hunt to keep them occupied during the ride.
