We love scavenger hunts! Whether that be indoor scavenger hunts or outdoor scavenger hunts, but there is something extra special about this nature walk scavenger hunt, it is the perfect activity to do whilst exploring nature on a family walk. 

You can either work as a family or in groups to complete the scavenger hunt or you can race to see who can tick of all the items on their nature walk scavenger hunt first! Either way having a treasure hunt to complete whilst out walking makes you really focus on your surroundings and perhaps notice things you wouldn't otherwise see.

Nature walk scavenger hunt supplies:


  • Printable scavenger hunt 
  • Markers, crayons or a pencil
  • Clipboard (optional)


Nature Walk Scavenger Hunt Directions: 


Download your preferred nature walk treasure hunt and print out a copy for each person doing the treasure hunt. I like to attach scavenger hunts to a clipboard so there is something to lean on as you tick the items off, but this is optional. Grab some markers, crayons or a pencil and head out on your nature walk. As you spot each item tick it off or colour it in. Can you find all the items?
