Scavenger hunts are part of our fun activities for Early Years.
They’re easy to make up and the whole family can join in.
Give children a list of things to find and bring back to you.
Tiny tots may like something to put their items in, like a bucket.
Older children might want to time how quickly they can find all the items.
You can do these indoors and outdoors.
Top Tip: theme your scavenger hunts

We’re going on a nature hunt.
Combine an outdoor scavenger hunt while you’re are out on a walk together.
Collect things in a bucket or bag. Or just spot things in the environment.
Try this nature hunt with your young child – created by our Natural Thinkers team.
It's a fun way of connecting with nature.
