Fun Outdoor Activity: Signs of Spring Scavenger Hunt

Published Feb 23, 2015 | Updated Feb 19, 2020

Join Tiny Treks owner Pamela on a Spring Scavenger Hunt!

Spring is here in San Francisco! The sun is shining and the birds are chirping. A spring scavenger hunt is a great way to get the entire family outside to explore. From a child in a stroller to a toddler walking to a school-age child, everyone enjoys a scavenger hunt.

I have a collection of colored dot stickers that I use for the scavenger hunts when I take out my family or Tiny Treks classes. Kids get very excited when they get to peel off stickers as they find each object on their scavenger hunt. For pre-readers I use a scavenger hunt print-out with only pictures, while for readers I often ask them to draw what they find as they go, matching words to pictures.

Ideally each child should have a clip board, which makes it easier to write/draw. At Tiny Treks we often will have a special day just to decorate our clipboards and personalize them for each child. The kids feel very official walking around holding their clipboard – very cute!
