As if going to the park isn’t fun enough, some kids get bored easier than others..
This is a 2 part could possibly last all summer scavenger hunt.
First you will need to print a list of all the parks in your neighborhood.
You can go to the parks and rec website for your town. They should provide you with a list of all the parks in the district. You can also add elementary schools to the list because most of them will have playgrounds.
I always end up taking my kids to the same parks; the 3 major parks in our town and the one closest to us. Since we are home all summer, why not make an adventure out of playgrounds. You can try to go to all the parks and cross them off the list as you go. I f you want, that can be it!! The scavenger hunt could be just finding and going to all the parks.
Be sure to look cute at the park by shopping these super cheap finds. Serious good deals for stylish kids.
If you are up to a challenge you can bring a separate scavenger hunt list.
These are things you can find and cross off, rather than picking up and bring home. You can go with things you find at a playground or certain playground equipment or both.
HERE ARE A FEW IDEAS TO GET YOU STARTED
Things/people at the playground
Find a real dog.
Lady drinking coffee
Pink water bottle
A grown man swinging.
This part is the playground equipment hunt.
Green Twisty slide
Green tunnel (basically try to find all tunnels you can crawl though in various colors at various parks)
Rock climbing wall
A motorcycle ride on
Ride on animal
YOU CAN TAYLOR YOUR LIST TO WHAT YOU THINK YOU AND YOUR KIDS WILL HAVE FUN FINDING. THESE ARE JUST A FEW TO GET YOU STARTED.
Let me know what you come up with!
