Get outside for some Scavenger Hunt fun!

At My Cubby we love a scavenger hunt! It is the perfect way for you to explore and enjoy your own backyard and to appreciate what is out there when you really take the time to look. It’s a great activity to do when you are out at your local park or playground so you can discover the treasures different environments have to offer.

By taking the time to seek out specific items in our surroundings, we open our eyes to how many amazing things are around us that we take for granted, or don’t notice during our day to day activities.

Remember, it’s a hunt not a race. There is no rush. Children can do it by themselves, in a group or with a grown up. If they don’t find or see all the things on the list, that’s ok. We make it challenging on purpose so they really get involved and need to search, this way they see so much more. If they don’t find all the items, encourage them to try the hunt another day, in different weather or a different time of year to see the results they get in various seasons and conditions. This is a great learning experience for them.

A scavenger hunt is the perfect school holiday activity- regardless of the weather and is a fantastic group activity for play dates and birthday parties. Children can do it separately and compare their treasures at the end; it’s so interesting to see all the different objects that the kids come up with, and their different interpretations of the lists.

As a safety measure- Before you start the park/ Nature hunt, ensure everyone knows the boundaries of the scavenger hunt. We don’t want any children wandering too far or out of sight while searching.

We have two scavenger hunts, made up of our favourite things to search for and see. You can download them free here. When you have done these and your children see how they work, perhaps you and your children can make one of your own together.

We’d love to see the results of your scavenger hunts, if you take a picture of your children during the hunt or with their treasures after the hunt, please tag us on Instagram or Facebook and use the hashtag #MyCubbyScavengerHunt We’ll keep an eye out for them. Happy hunting!!

Ah, space. I love it. I can’t get enough of it. I’m an introvert, so people who know me understand just how important my space is to me. Especially the neighbours, who regularly hear my hollers of “I JUST NEED SOME SPACE!!!!!!!” when my daughter has perched herself on my
