If you’re an outdoorsy and active family, planning a scavenger hunt is the perfect family day activity. . Scavenger hunts are a perfect way to develop team building skills, problem solving, and show your kids some of your favourite places. Plan your own or sign up for a professionally lead hunt with other families. Either option will be sure to get you up and moving.
If you’re planning on creating your own, here are some ideas on how to execute:
1. Use Google maps to help plan your route. Google Maps has a great feature that allows you to drop pins, share with friends, and provides you real time knowledge for travel times.
2. Dress accordingly for weather if you’re venturing into the great outdoors.. Be sure to wear an appropriate amount of layers and comfy footwear.
3. Apply a buddy system. Teams are a great way to ensure that everyone has fun and stays safe (especially those with smaller children).
4. Pack snacks. All that physical activity is sure to work up an appetite. Keep your little explorers well fed and ready for action with this quick and healthy rainbow pinwheels recipe!
