If you need some fresh air and enjoy going for walks with your family, our neighborhood scavenger hunt is the perfect activity.
Getting outside is a must right now, whether you take your dog for a walk, go for a bike ride, hike some local trails or head out for a run. Fresh air has many benefits like strengthening your immune system, helping to improve blood pressure and heart rate, and gives you more energy.
We’ve made a free printable for you and your family to use while enjoying some fresh air and fun together. Just print out our neighborhood scavenger hunt printable, grab a pencil, and bring it along with you on your walk, and see how many you can check off your list!
Let us know in the comment section below if you went on a neighborhood scavenger hunt and if you and your family enjoyed it.
Another creative idea to get the kids excited and have a little fun is to contact your friends, neighbors, or do a post on Facebook about participating in a community “bear hunt.”You place a teddy bear in any street-facing window, and children can hunt for them while out for a walk or car ride with their family. Check out this article about community “bear hunts” for more detailed information.
