For families, like us, who LOVE the outdoors – our Nature Scavenger Hunt is a perfect way to turn nature and the outdoors into a fun activity for the kids. Whether you are camping, hiking, or just taking a walk – this would be a fun way to turn a simple outing  into a fun adventure! We have made it an easy craft for you with a free printable!


I LOVED watching the Little Chefs observe nature and the little things that make the outdoors so wonderful! It was interesting to see what the Little Chefs would find as their own treasures and items they thought were unique and beautiful to them. This Nature Scavenger Hunt Printable allows them to be very independent. They look at the picture or read the words then they know what to look for next.

It was fun to see the Little Chefs bags so different and unique. One bag was full of pinecones, another filled with flowers, and one filled with rocks!! The Little Chefs found and observed many different flowers, rocks, bugs, and animal prints. They found items of different colors, shapes, and textures.  This Nature Scavenger Hunt printable has them searching for all types of things – so it was fun to see what they came up with!

The Little Chefs LOVED this activity. Don’t forget to print your Nature Scavenger Hunt now. These kids walked, searched, observed and found many interesting things. It was a great way for the Little Chefs to have fun with each other and out in Nature!
