If you are looking for ways to get the kids outside why not print out this free neighborhood scavenger hunt?
We absolutely love scavenger hunt printables 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 outdoor scavenger hunt we have created is the Earth Day scavenger hunt.
As we are a homeschool of one, there is generally only me and my son 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? 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!

How to play the outdoor scavenger hunt?
The best thing about this fun activity is it is super easy.
All you need to do is grab the free printable, grab a pen, and go for a walk.
We always use a storage clipboard so we can keep everything together, and it makes marker off the items easier.
The list of items to find on your walk around the neighborhood
There are 15 things you need to find on your walk, as you find them you can cross them off the list.
You need to find a:
- blue car
- basketball hoop
- fire hydrant
- trash can
- black door
- lawn mower
- stop sign
- purple flower
- truck on a drive
- water hose
Getting fresh air and walking definitely help with my son’s 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.)
There are 2 ways you can play this:
Firstly just by marking the items off when you see them, or secondly why not turn it into a photo scavenger hunt? When the kids find an item rather than crossing it off, why not get them to take a photo of it?
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!
