Looking for an indoor scavenger hunt activities for kids? Check out our rainy day scavenger hunt sensory bin.
This post is in collaboration with Chalkola! All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Since rainy days are upon us, I made this quick activity for Niko combining today’s Scavenger Hunt Day and the weather.
National Scavenger Hunt Day is observed every 24th of May to celebrate the fun and excitement of scavenger hunting.
It would be nice to do an actual scavenger hunt outdoor, but it’s been raining for a few days now. So, I set up a sensory bin instead. I drew the items using our Chalkola chalk markers.
I asked Niko to look for the items found in the list. I read the name of the items out loud and he searched for them in the bin.
Happy National Scavenger Hunt Day everyone!
