Spring Scavenger Hunt For Kids
Searching for signs of spring is a fun science learning activity. It gives kids a chance to practice their observation skills and learn about the changing seasons. As an added bonus our scavenger hunt has a word with a matching image, so we’ve have a little reading practice thrown in for good measure. How’s that?
It’s super easy to prepare, so that’s another win in my book.
