1. Outdoor Nature Scavenger Hunt

During the fall, the weather is absolutely beautiful. It is not too hot or cold which makes it a great time to get outside and enjoy the weather.

These outdoor nature scavenger hunts are the perfect activity to get the kids exploring the outdoors. Take a walk around your neighborhood and see how many of the items you all can find.

First, print off one of the free printable nature scavenger hunt above, then grab a clipboard like this and pen to write with.

If you have more than one child I highly recommend printing off more than one so they can each check off their items. There is something about getting to check off items that adds to the fun for kids.

Your kids will be so excited searching for that flock of geese, bird’s nest and feather.

If you have any, you could also bring along magnifying glasses to examine and get a better view of some of the items you find such as tree bark, pinecones, and animal tracks.

If you live in the city some of the items may be harder to find such as a tractor. You can always just replace it with a more common fall item found in the city.
