A GOOD way to keep kids interested during a hike is to play a nature-based treasure hunt.
Make a list of items everyone has to find on a hike, and the first one to find them all wins.
Kids don’t have to actually collect the objects, they can announce their finds by calling out ‘spot’. Suggestions for the list: Something blue Heart-shaped rock Something man-made Animal print Animal poo (scat) Seed pod
Fungus, moss or lichen A feather
A leaf with a hole
