Going on a color scavenger hunt is an awesome activity for kids. Color hunts are a perfect way to help kids learn their colors and different shades of the colors. It’s a great activity for an introductory color lesson in art. Pair it with learning about the color wheel! Or this is such a fun nature study lesson as you learn about leaves and flowers in the Spring or Summer.
How To Go On a Color Scavenger Hunt
This color scavenger hunt is so fun and simple to get ready. Just print out my color viewer and color collection page. I printed them on card stock to make them more durable. This printable is available in my subscriber library for free!

Cut the center out of the color viewer, and attach a jumbo craft stick to the bottom (not required, but adds a fun touch!)
Next, take your color viewer on a little color hunt! This is most fun outside, but it could also be done inside of the house or in a school room. We always prefer the outside option.
When kids find a color match, they can place it on the collection page.
Egg Carton Color Scavenger Hunt
Another fun way to go on a color hunt is with egg cartons. We did this years ago with my kids when they were littler and they loved it!
I saved two egg cartons, one for each of my kids participating. We painted the inside of each hole a different color. After they were dry, we went on a nature color hunt throughout the neighborhood.
We tried to find everything natural (no trash) but there were a few colors that they painted which were not easy to find. The kids had a lot of fun, and they kept the little treasures they found for a while in their egg cartons.
