Take a Walk & Enjoy a Neighbourhood Scavenger Hunt

| | ,

At at a time when it feels like we can’t do much at all, take a short walk around your neighbourhood (adhering to COVID-19 social distancing rules). It provides fresh air, some exercise and a change of scenery. To keep kids occupied on this walk, we’ve come up with a neighbourhood scavenger hunt. It has lots of things that you and your family can look for on your neighbourhood walks. Bring some binoculars or a magnifying glass and get them to use their observational skills. And the scavenger hunt doesn’t all have to be done on one walk – do it over days or a couple of weeks. Print it off and let the kids check them out or keep it on your phone.
