This In the Night Scavenger Hunt printable is a GREAT way to get the kids outside and having lots of fun!
Summer nights are some of the best nights for making memories. My two boys love to get out and catch lightning bugs with the neighbor kids or scope out the constellations in the sky.
Because they love spending time outdoors at night, I decided to create a fun night time scavenger hunt for them.
FREE In the Night Scavenger Hunt Printable
With this fun and FREE printable game, kids can grab a flashlight and head outside to look and listen for common items. Things like the moon, a shadow and a porch light may be easy to find.
Other items listed on the scavenger hunt may be a little more difficult, like the Big Dipper and spider web. I added a range of difficulty to make it more fun for both of my boys to enjoy it, despite the 3 year age difference.
I think kids as little as 3-4 years old could enjoy this with some parent’s help to read the list. In fact, the night scavenger hunt printable would make a fun family activity! Work together or split into teams (as long as each team has a reader) to see who can find the most in the least amount of time!
Beyond just the family enjoying this night time scavenger hunt, you could print this for children’s sleepovers or when you’re packing for a camping trip. Homeschooling parents may also find this game useful when teaching about animal sounds or constellations.
