Are you looking for free Nature Scavenger Hunt printables? We have several fun options!  Every spring, as the weather gets nicer and nicer we spend more and more time outdoors. We’ve been doing this scavenger hunt for years. I know we’re not alone because this printable has gotten well over 50,000 downloads since I first made it years ago!!

We found a lot of cool critters that very first year we did it:

Spring has finally arrived here, so it’s  time to boot the kids outside for our annual Nature Scavenger Hunt! There are so many great reasons for going outside this time of year!

Here are some other Scavenger Hunts I’ve made for the kids:

  • Photo Hunt — One year, I sent the kids out with cameras and had them take pictures of everything from a fence and stump, to another person’s hand and a flock of birds. You can download the Photo Scavenger Hunt by clicking on the link or photo below. It is free to download as well:


  • I made another Second Nature Scavenger Hunt that is a bit more challenging for the kids this last year.  They spent close to three hours hunting for the creatures on this list… This second scavenger hunt is probably best near a creek/pond. We have one that runs through the back of our yard, so I had the kids try to find algae, a frog, toad or lizard, etc.


We really love going out this time of year! What about you?!

We have lots of different unit studies. Among our most popular these days are our Earth Science and Biology Units

Earth's Major Systems - Atmosphere Geosphere Hydrosphere Biosphere

We ♥LOVE♥ hands-on activities (Did you see this post with TONS of hands-on activities pics?), so most of our units include photos of the hands-on activities we did. For example, the Earth Science Unit has more than a dozen activities from convection currents and plate tectonics to creating a gelatin volcano and more!

and our Human Body Bundle

Again, each of these units include hands-on activity ideas that we did to help make the units come alive for the kids! Skeletal System, Digestive System, Circulatory System, etc.
