Who else is realizing they don’t give teachers enough credit?? Lol! I’ve been trying to keep my daughter’s brain nice and exercised, since being quarantined, and I’ve finally found some fun ways for her to ‘hopefully’ keep that hunger for knowledge.
Remember how much fun scavenger hunts were when you were a kid? Well, I’ve found a way for my kids to learn AND be kept busy for good amount of time.
Scavenger Hunt – Educational Activities
If anyone is having a hard time remembering what a scavenger hunt is, here’s my rendition:
Create a list of items, but instead of using the exact name for the items, use words that describe them. Then the kids have to go find each item around the house that matches those descriptive words.
So when you’re playing with your child, you’d read the first item as something that’s “red and round.”
And you can help your kiddo look around the house for something red and round!
I use simple and fun terms like colors, shapes, numbers, and even animals. My four-year-old loves this game and I like knowing its educational for her.
What fun educational activities are you doing with your kids during this time at home?
