Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger Hunt (3)

The purpose of this particular scavenger hunt for Travis, besides just the thrill of seeking for and finding a toy, was to use his directional words. He and I headed to the park with a plastic dinosaur along for company, and took turns guiding one another on the hunt!

For the first round, he hid the dinosaur while I counted to 20. I then asked him to guide me to the hiding spot using lots of descriptive words. Should I go forwards, left, or right?

Should I look under the truck or inside it? Should I got around or in front of the tree?

The idea with this particular hunt is not to trick the other person, but to be each other’s guide. It’s a great skill builder for kindergartners learning map reading skills.

Travis loved it so much he wanted to play multiple rounds. He was especially excited to find dinosaur high up in a tree one time!
