As the summer heat fades away and we welcome the cool, crisp air of fall, it’s the perfect time to head outside to explore and interact with the environment.

A great way to discover the wonders of the new season is with a fall scavenger hunt! Whether it’s in the schoolyard, the local park or the surrounding neighborhood, students will have a chance to enjoy the weather as they hunt for a list of fall-themed items.

To get started:

  • Download and print the fall scavenger hunt checklist. We’ve also created a blank checklist template for you to add your own items!
  • Divide students into groups of two or three, and give each group a checklist and a brown paper bag in which to collect their items.
  • Send them off into the area to find each item, and have them check off each item as they collect them.
  • The first group to collect each item wins!

Happy hunting! Find more fall activities and crafts on our Pinterest page.
