The weather is chilly, but that doesn't mean that kids hibernate.

Your kids are still as active as ever, and they want something to occupy their time. You want something to occupy their time too.

Why not print off our fall scavenger hunt? There are indoor and outdoor items to find, and you can add additional details to make it more interesting to your child. Maybe make it a competition between siblings to see who can find all the items the fastest. Maybe see who can be the most creative with some of the items. Maybe have your child take photos of each item as he or she finds them.

The sky is the limit! Click the image below for a downloadable PDF.
