One of our favorite things to do in the spring time is get out and explore in nature.  I created a simple little Spring Nature Scavenger Hunt printable to share with all of you today to help you do the same this spring season! 

Spring is my favorite time of year here where we live. After a long, gray winter, it is amazing to see everything coming back to life again. When warmer weather returns, we all want to do more outdoor activities!  I love to take my kids out and let them see the amazing signs of life and growth. The seasonal changes in spring are so interesting.

Educational Benefits of Doing a Nature Scavenger Hunt

Nature scavenger hunts are a wonderful way to introduce the natural world to younger kids.  They can help older kids and younger kids work on their observation skills. Nature lessons are also great science lessons. The changing seasons are the perfect time to get kids out exploring, studying, and observing what is happening. They can learn about different types of trees, different animals, birds, insects, seeds, wildflowers, weather, and more! Plus, screen-free activities are  always a great option.
