You don’t have to travel far for a neighborhood scavenger hunt. Just head outside and go for a walk to see how many of these items you can spot. You can check things off the list just about anywhere you’re at, whether you go on a hunt in your own area or you go to another neighborhood. This would also be good to take with you on vacation—it’s a great way to discover a new area.
Want to make your own hunt?
The best person to create a really good scavenger hunt for your area is you! You’ll know your area best, so take a look at what’s around you, and then create a list of things to find from there. You could also try turning this hunt (either this one or one you create) into a game by challenging your friends or forming teams within your own family. You can set a time limit to see how many items you can get in or it could make a great photo challenge. Have everyone take pictures of the items along the way.

If you want this hunt, you can download it on Teachers Pay Teachers. This is a great site with educational materials for teachers and parents, and I love being part of it. Plus learn about my book, The Ultimate Book of Scavenger Hunts.
