What do you need for the hunt?

Apart from the printable hunt list, (you can download it below) you don’t need much to do the scavenger hunt but a few extra accessories could make it extra special.

This is especially true at a fall festival or  special event (this could form part of a Thanksgiving party loot bag, for example).

The great thing about this fall scavenger hunt is that you can adapt it to the ages and number of children.

It would be equally fun with a group of 8-year-olds as a fun activity for one 3-year-old.

Tips For A Successful Hunt

If you would like to use this nature scavenger hunt again and again, you can put it into a plastic file protector or you could laminate it.
