My kids asked for a scavenger hunt one day. With 7 1/2 years between the oldest and the youngest, it's exciting to find activities that they all can enjoy together and this was a decided success. Camille took the photos, Sylvia marked off the categories, and Ayla used the magnifying glass to look closely at things. They worked together to find the items.The instructions: Take a photo of something from each category. Bonus for more than one thing in 3 or more categories. Super bonus if you find 10 things in a single category. Be creative.
...and they're off.
Camille enjoyed helping me make collages for most of the categories. Some things fit into more than one category.
