This is our spin on the popular scavenger hunt printable game for kids! Scroll down to download our free nature scavenger hunt and encourage your little ones to play outdoors for a bit. We have more than 12 options so you can mix and match depending on what you’ll find in your area.

Also, since many of us are spending more time inside right now, we will have a free indoor version of this scavenger hunt next Wednesday.

Unbe-leaf-ably Fun (and Free!)

Our nature scavenger hunt printable is a simple way for your family to have fun outside without having to travel very far. Just grab an empty egg carton and watch as your little ones search for leaves, twigs, rocks, and more. As they fill up their egg carton, they can label each item they’ve found — or just wait until they’re home to finish labeling.

We printed our nature scavenger hunt on 8.5″x11″ label paper and stuck each piece onto our egg carton. But you can also just use regular paper and glue the pieces on. If you have pinking shears handy, you can also give each piece a fun little zig-zag edge like we did. 

Ready to play? Just download our free printable at the bottom of this post.
