As summer draws near we thought we would put together some activities that you can do with the kids. Some at home and other events that we have found going on this summer, that would be great for the family. We have included in this blog the Bug Hunt and the Scavenger Hunt download sheets.
The Bug hunt is a family favourite an a great way to keep the kids engaged on a family walk. Use the tick sheet below and see if they can find one of each of the bugs.
The Scavenger Hunt is a bit more tricky. You have to find an object or living thing for each of the letters of the alphabet on a walk, or run. Use the download sheet below and mark your answers of what they have seen.
