what you need: pictures ~ computer ~ printer ~ hunters
I walked around the house and found 9 spots to photograph. I had no idea how difficult I should make the pictures, so I made a couple really easy and a few pretty hard. (We had terrible lighting because the day was muggy… but I did my best!) I used Microsoft Word to place the pictures and then printed out the page.
I slid the Scavenger Hunt page into a page protector…thinking Little M would like to “mark off” the items she found. I was planning to use stickers that we could then just peel off so Big M could give it a try with a fresh page. She took off running before I had a chance to mention the stickers. Oh well, the page protector kept our Scavenger Hunt wrinkle free!
Tips (to maximize learning): 1. Use this activity with all ages. For young kids make the pictures really obvious. Help them match the first one or two, then let your little one have a turn. For older kids take a picture of just a small part of an object. See if they can match the colors or texture of an item without seeing what surrounds it. 2. If your little one has their own camera, have them make up a scavenger hunt for you.
