Summer Scavenger Hunt

Come see the BUZZ!

Looking for an interesting and fun way to keep your toddler busy during these long summer days? Why not try a fun scavenger hunt! You can use different themes and by doing so, they will learn all about new objects or connect certain items that go together when they start looking for them.


A good way to learn about different objects is by connecting them with like objects. For example, if the theme for your scavenger hunt is fruit, then they must look for items on your fruit list, thereby connecting the idea of what a fruit is and which ones are fruits (as opposed to vegetables). Here are some scavenger list ideas to try this summer!


Scavenger Hunt Ideas:

  1. Fruit (you can have them look for them at home or in a supermarket and check off a list when they have found them)
  • apple
  • orange
  • banana

  • lemon


  1. Vegetables

  1. Outside Summer Items (you can take your toddler outside and look for these items on other people or in stores and check off the items when you see them)
  • sunglasses
  • sunscreen
