If you are looking for ways to get the kids outside why not print out this free neighborhood scavenger hunt?
We absolutely love scavenger hunts in our home and have created lots of different ones for each of the seasons. But what I love about this one is you are also getting the kids walking around the neighborhood getting exercise! Another outside scavenger hunt we have created is the Earth Day scavenger hunt.
As we are a homeschool of one, there is generally only me and Freddie scouring the neighborhood for these clues. But if you had more than one child why not take it in turn to find the next clue, or if you are a competitive family why not see who crosses them off first!
As we homeschool we tend to have at least 3 short walks around the neighborhood each day. It definitely helps us both regroup and just walk away from the books. When we first started it was a bit of a chore getting him out and about, but he now asks me for a walk.
This neighborhood scavenger hunt just makes it a little more fun!

Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt
This scavenger hunt is fairly simple and you will be able to find everything as you walk along.
- blue car
- basketball hoop
- fire hydrant
- trash can
- black door
- lawn mower
- stop sign
- purple flower
- truck on a drive
- water hose
If you are from somewhere that doesn’t have flags flying, or wreaths on the door for every season (I am talking to you UK readers) just let me know and I will try and create a separate one for you.
Getting fresh air and walking definitely help with his ADHD and I honestly think that is the main reason we rock homeschooling!!
Although it is definitely easier to go for walks in the winter in South Florida! The summer months are brutal, but we still make time (normally first thing in the morning before breakfast, and just before bedtime.)
Why not make the hunt even more exciting with prizes for the winner? This Exploring Nature Activity Book for Kids would be perfect, especially if you are trying to encourage them to get outside!
