Everybody loves hunting for treasures, and nature has plenty to spare. Sammy especially loves scavenger hunts when even he can “read” the list of objects to find!
First, go on line and create the scavenger hunt list by cutting and pasting pictures on a piece of paper. Pick objects that can be found outdoors in your current season (Examples: moss, an acorn, a red leaf, a green leaf, a rock, a feather, a dandelion, etc.). Printing the list in color would be helpful.
Now, off you go to a backyard, park, beach, or all around the block. Give your child a bag and the list.
Most dogs hunt by smelling whatever they’re looking for. The moisture on their nose acts like glue that traps a smell so the dog can more easily take it in.
Some snakes hunt with by smelling too. But they smell with their tongues!
Hawks use their eyes to hunt, just like we do. But they can see much, much better than we can.
