Sensory Scavenger Hunt

How can we engage children in using their senses outdoors? Use a Sensory Scavenger Hunt! This can be something you try to search for all in one longer outdoor trip or keep it on hand for whenever you notice these things throughout the rest of the season. Older children love having their own page to check off, and younger children can be guided through. Our Scavenger Hunt provides lots of opportunities for conversations about vocabulary and the different ways we view our world: Does something bright mean that it glows, that light can be reflected from it, or a bright color? What does musty mean? I think this smells good, you think it smells stinky…can we both be right?
