The first day back to homeschool should be fun! The kids have had a much needed break, so let’s ease them back gently to homeschool with our free homeschool scavenger hunt.
On the first day back we always buy a homeschool gift and they get this when they manage to find all of the stationery on the hunt! So the evening before the first day of school I will hide all of the stationery around the house. Or if I am really feeling lazy I will use it as an excuse for the kids to find the old stationery and put it away! (I’ve done this more than once!)
If you are looking for even more first day of homeschool fun check out our top tips.
This is such a nice and fun way to start back to school, and the kids will look forward to it every year. As we are year-round homeschoolers if we have a break of 2 weeks or more we always start back with this game! Even in middle school, and I imagine it will continue even into the high school years. It’s just our little tradition, that he loves.

Homeschool Scavenger Hunt
There are two ways you can play this game, the organized or the not-so-organized way! And both work really well! The first way involves you hiding your very organized stationery so the kids can put it back in its place. The second way is perfect for homes that are not quite so organized! Get the kids to run around the house to find all of these homeschool supplies and put them away where they should belong!
Normally I have a really organized and tidy house, but this year I have definitely let the housework take a back seat. So this year we are definitely playing the cleaning way! It’s no less fun for the kids, and so much easier for you!!
These are the items they need to find and bring to you (or put away!) to get their homeschool gift (check out our favorite gifts). The gift could even be one of these items.
- Paper clips
- Coloring pencils
- Sticky Tape
- Hole punch
- Post-it notes
