How to play

Get the older kids to work in teams with the younger kids and have fun in nature.

As there are pictures and words young children who are early readers can try and read the word as well.

Kids of all ages will have such a great time with this.

There are 2 ways they can play:

Work in small groups and mark off the camping items when they are spotted.

Older children can turn this into a photo scavenger hunt. When they spot an item they need to snap a photo of it, as proof!

You could have a little friendly competition, with whichever team gets back to camp first, or whoever takes the best photos.
