I decided that every Saturday I will be taking my kids hiking during the fall season. We had our first hike this past Saturday. So being my first hike I didn't really know what to expect. I wanted it to be this cool scavenger hunt and collect things to make crafts out of later. Well, it didn't quite work out that way.
We did use the scavenger hunt hike sheet I created, which you can print for free here. My son was pretty excited to use the sheet to find things and mark them off. So that was a good thing, but we didn't collect anything. I felt that nature should stay in nature. Maybe on future hikes I will feel different, but that day, I knew that nature needed to stay in the woods.
I think the best part is when we got chased by a dragon fly, everyone ran except my middle child, she just stood there looking at us like we were crazy, lol. Here are a few pictures of the neat things we saw during our hike.
Here is a preview of the scavenger hunt printable.
Since I am new to the whole lets go hiking every Saturday, how do you incorporate learning during your hikes? Let me know in the comments!
My name is Robin. I am a homeschooling mom of three and I just love to find ways to make learning fun. I am so excited to share my ideas with you. I try to make my ideas as inexpensive as possible. Most of the items I use are things that are around most houses and if you have a printer and ink you are all set. Please feel free to use these ideas in your own learning adventure with your children.
