This week we tried to get creative with fun things to do around the house. Social Distancing is better when you can get outside for fresh air, and many families are going out for walks to break up boredom in their homes. What’s even better? When you can go out for a walk and find something fun like an outdoor I Spy scavenger hunt! As a kid, I loved I Spy books (which are actually buy 2 get 1 free right now.) My mother worked at a library and I would always check them out. They were so fun! I came up with an outdoor I Spy scavenger hunt idea for our front yard to encourage those walking by to participate in some extra fun. We hid items around our yard, put up a sign, and let passerby’s enjoy the scavenger hunt! As we finished putting everything out for our outdoor I Spy scavenger hunt we had 2 moms and their kiddos stop to play. Everyone enjoyed it for a good 10 minutes and it made us smile! Along with our fun I Spy scavenger hunt, I wanted to find a list of resources for you all as a guide to creating more fun for your kids outside! I think it’s great that many of us are getting back to basics and enjoying nature. I miss the good ol’ days of making mud pies with my Memaw in her yard and everyone getting outside again reminds me of those fun memories. 1| I Spy In Your Front Yard via The Vintage Modern Wife (above!)2| Nature Scavenger Hunt via Simplifying Family3| Nature Walk Scavenger Hunt via The Shirley Journey4| Road Trip Scavenger Hunt via Everyday Shortcuts5| Outdoor Treasure Hunt via High Chair Chronicles6| Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt via The Tip Toe Fairy7| Summer Scavenger Hunt via Merry About Town8| Spring Kids Scavenger Hunt Ideas via Two Kids and a Coupon9| Get Your Tween Outside: Scavenger Hunt Ideas via Staying Close to Home10| John & Mary’s Hunt via Life Anchored11| Easter Scavenger Hunt via Brooklyn Active Mama12| Pretend Play: Go on a Safari via All For the Boys13| Outdoor Scavenger Hunt via Thrifty and Thriving14| How to Set Up a Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt via We Got the Funk15| Spring Activities for Kids via Babies to Bookworms16| Kids Scavenger Hunt for Easter with Jumbo Easter Egg Prize via The Denver Housewife17| Animal Safari Scavenger Hunt via Play Party Plan18| I Spy Nature Hunt via Free Homeschool Deals19| I Spy Vehicles via Preschool Alphabet20| Flashlight Nighttime Scavenger Hunt via The Tip Toe Fairy21| Nature I Spy via Busy Toddler22| Color Scavenger Hunt via Natural Beach Living23| Alphabet Scavenger Hunt via Play Party Plan24| Campground I Spy Game via Mama Cheaps25| How to Have a Disney World Scavenger Hunt at Home via Passports and Parenting 26| Printable Scavenger Hunt Activity via The Momma Diaries27| Fun Camping Activities for Teens and Tweens via Carla Schauer28| Outdoor Scavenger Hunt via And Hattie Makes Three29| 5 Senses Nature Scavenger Hunt via Childhood 10130| Photo Scavenger Hunt via Craftaholics Anonymous31| Backyard Scavenger Hunt via So Easy Being Green32| Outdoor Scavenger Hunts at the Playground via The Tip Toe Fairy33| Nature Scavenger Hunt via Carla Schauer34| Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt via Baby Savers35| Backyard Scavenger Hunt via Hey Let’s Make Stuff36-41| 5 Unique Camping Scavenger Hunts via The Crazy Outdoor Mama42| Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt via The Savvy Sparrow43| Sensory Motor Scavenger Hunt for Kids via The Inspired Treehouse44| Spring Scavenger Hunt via Moritz Fine Designs45| Island Scavenger Hunt via Counting Coconuts46| Hiking Scavenger Hunt via Make and Takes47| Summer Nature Hunt via Mommy Evolution48| Walmart Scavenger Hunt via Kid Activities49| Glow In The Dark Scavenger Hunt via Dating Divas50| Video Scavenger Hunt via Mom of 6 Can’t get outside?
