After you’ve printed your scavenger hunt printable, attach it to your clipboard, get your pencils or crayons, and head outside.

This printable is perfect for those summer nature walks outside and will not only encourage your child to explore the nature around them but will also make for a fun art project.


You could keep this activity super easy and simply invite your child to draw what they find during their nature walk or you could use this activity to lead to an entire series of art inspired by their findings.

You could invite your child to paint a larger scene, including everything they found on their nature walk. Or, maybe they want to learn more about a particular item from their scavenger hunt – a particular flower, for example. A trip to the local library might be fun, where you and your child could search for books on different flowers.

You could also invite your child to create paintings of their favorite flowers. Or, sculpt a clay flower. The possibilities are endless!
