Instructions:

  1. Using the provided 'Backyard Scavenger Hunt' check-list, go and spend some time outside! Tune into your senses- what can you hear? Do you smell anything? What can you see? Touch? 

  2. Paying special attention to these four senses, make your way through the check-list. Can you find all 12 items in your backyard? 

  3. Did you notice anything that wasn't included on the list? Maybe you can hear the creek that runs behind your house, or see a bird's nest in the tree. Use the extra space to share something that makes your backyard unique! 

​​

Post-Activity Questions

  • What was the most difficult to find?

  • What was your favourite item on the list?

  • How does your body feel when you spend time in nature? What about your mind? 

Please email us a photo of your completed check-list! We'll feature it on our social media and here on the website!
