This backyard Outdoor Scavenger Hunt was simple to do and fun for the children. They were so impressed with themselves when they solved the first clue. It took them a bit, but all ages took a turn to figure it out. This one was fun for me to set up. I taped the leaves to the tree trunk and also to the low leaves on the tree. They came back with half the leaves thinking they had them all, but rereading the clue (which they did many times) told them to look again. With multiple children and the word search page, I found that printing one for each child made it easier to manage.

This is one of my favorite escape rooms! I loved having my kids outside to do it. I’m glad that it went well with your group of children and I love to hear that the children were impressed with themselves when solving the clues. It’s great when it is a positive learning experience. I appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.
All the best,
