Kids can bring a magnifying glass or a pair of kid-size binoculars to take a closer look at all of the items in nature. They can also take pictures of everything they find. If you are doing the scavenger hunt with a group they can take pictures to show proof that they found everything on the list. Most of the items should be found on an outdoor walk.


Other Spring Free Nature Activities


Gardening is a fun activity for spring time. Ok it isn’t always free but once you get started, and this can just be with planting some dollar store flower seeds, it can be free for the rest of the season. We sometimes take seeds from fruits we already have to plant and see if they grow. It is all about the process of being outside and playing in the dirt!

Make a mud kitchen! This is a fun, if you have any old pots, pans, or tupperware you plan on getting rid of use them for a mud kitchen. Then if it rains or use a hose to make a little mud for kids playtime. This can entertain kids for hours!

Bike ride time! The spring season is a great time to get outdoors with family and go on bike rides together.

Make an outdoor picnic. Bring a picnic outdoors for a change of scene. This can be at a park on even in the backyard.

​Spring books. Find your favorite books for springtime to read with kids. We like to get different books from the library to fit the season.

Spring vocabulary. Use vocabulary words in your outdoor activities for kids to get an understanding of the world around them.

Spring jokes! There are tons of fun jokes just for springs to tell in the car or with kids outdoors.

Take a field trip to a nature trail. We love finding the best places to see all the wildflowers during the spring. If you have a nature reserve near you this can be a fun place to explore and learn.


I hope the free spring scavenger hunt provided family fun or fun with a group of kids. It is so much fun to get outdoors and explore with kids!
