Free Garden Scavenger Hunt Printable (for Outside Fun)
Get the kids outside exploring with our free garden scavenger hunt printable.
Scavenger hunt printables are so much fun, we loved them when the kids were really little, but even now our son is in middle school he and his friends have so much with them.
Now to be fair it is now a competition to see who wins first for bragging rights, but it’s totally worth it.
We have never been very keen gardeners, until recently.
In fact, I am still not. I can take care of children, but plants and flowers not so much!
My husband on the other hand since turning 50 a few years ago has now developed a love of gardening. So much so, my son now calls him Flower Boy!
So I have created this for my husband, as I think I am pretty funny! But in all seriousness, the kids are going to love getting outside and exploring.

I’m trying to figure out a scavenger hunt for my new grandson adopted into the family. He’s unique and I call him my little rain man because he’s a little genius mixed with an odd but wise humor. He loves treasure chests so I have found a mini miniature one and a miniature one and a small one you might find in a fish tank. They are coming in July to visit again and I want to put a treasure hunt together for him with a variety of gifts at the end or along the way with clues. I love all your ideas and would love anything you can suggest. Thank you so much ?
