Welcome Vanessa…
Color Scevenger Hunt for Kids
Hey everyone, Vanessa here from Our Thrifty Ideas. I’m so excited to be here guest posting at Skip to my Lou’s Summer Craft Camp. Over at the Barker house, we are going on our 3rd week of Summer, and although we are loving being out of school, there’s only so long that we can go without hearing the dreaded “I’m bored” phrase. I’ve started compiling and creating a bunch of fun activities that my kids can pull out once I start hearing those words come out of them.

I thought I would share a fun Scavenger Hunt with you today. I don’t know about your family, but we all tend to be a little competitive; so a little game to create some competition as well as get my kids outdoors is just what we need. I created this color scavenger hunt which is perfect for kids of any age. This is something that my 3 year old can play or something that we could do on a date night!

Color Scavenger Hunt

The idea behind the game is for each kid to have their paper on a clipboard and start in the same place. Then after determining a set amount of time to go look, they will all run off (of course keep an eye on the little ones) around the neighborhood trying to find as many things of each letter as possible.

I have a feeling that the greens, blues, and browns will be easy to find as they are a part of nature. But colors like purple, pink and orange might be a little more tricky.

It’ll be fun to see what some kids find and what colors surprise me at being easy.

  1. I am going to have print this for our upcoming beach trip. My kids always love to look for certain things in the car and this would be so much fun for them!!

  2. What a cute idea this is. Not only does it get the kids outside but it gets them observing their surroundings, paying attention to details and reinforces their colors. Loving how easy this is, too…with zero clean-up. That’s always a plus for parents 🙂 -Misty
