As it is Arbor Day coming up this Friday (the last Friday of April) I wanted to create a free tree scavenger hunt printable for you and the kids to enjoy.
So what is Arbor Day? It is simply a day where we are encouraged to plant new trees. It is similar to Earth Day in that it is another day that celebrates nature.
This tree scavenger hunt is a great activity to play year-round but is a great way to celebrate Arbor Day.

Tree Scavenger Hunt
This scavenger hunt is such a fun game to play. Getting outside with the kids is so much fun, but sometimes they need a little activity to do just to keep them occupied! This tree scavenger hunt is a great way to learn about trees but also just to see a little bit more than they normally would. Included in this scavenger hunt are the following they need to find:
- Birds in tree
- Evergreen tree
- Planting a tree
- Tree with cones
- Insect on a tree
- Bird nest
- Tree stump
- Trees in bloom
- Fruit tree
- Squirrel in tree
- Leaves on the floor
- A tree with red leaves
All of these should be easy to find no matter where you are in the world or what season.
If you are wanting to learn more about trees with the kids then I really recommend these books:
- The Tree Book for Kids and Their Grown-Ups
- The Magic and Mystery of Trees
- Trees, Leaves, Flowers, and Seeds: A Visual Encyclopedia of the Plant Kingdom
We should all be able to identify the trees that are around us, I have to admit though I probably couldn’t. These books are fantastic and we are starting to learn more about trees during our school day.
For even more Arbor Day activities check out the free educational resources the Arbor Day Foundation has to offer.
Our free tree handprint template is another great activity with preschoolers.
