Outdoor Scavenger Hunts

These outdoor scavenger hunts are a great way to spend the day outdoors with the kids. It will keep them active enough that they won't be bored and provides a good activity to stimulate their brain (just don't tell them that!). We have scavenger hunts for a variety of outdoor locations from the beach, to a local park or playground. Some scavenger hunts require advance preparation at the location while others use the objects that are commonly available at that location.

As with all the hunts on our site, if you find something that is not applicable for your location or you don't like it replace it with something else. If you are worried that the kids won't be able to find it an alternative is to leave it on the list and make them come up with something that is as close to the item as possible.

These scavenger hunts are sure to be a blast while providing an abundance of fresh air!
