Let’s Learn Spring Vocabulary Words!

Forget flashcards – the best way for your child to learn spring nature words is to get outside and experience them first hand with a spring scavenger hunt!

Since we live in a very snowy area, I want to soak up every moment of warm weather that we have. It’s already the beginning of May, but we are just getting buds here ☺

How to Get Ready for Your Spring Scavenger Hunt

Once you’ve printed out your copy of the spring scavenger hunt, you can
1. leave it in the paper form
2. or if you think you’ll be doing this activity multiple times, you can either laminate it or slip into a page protector and use dry-erase markers to circle the items you find!
3. Grab a clipboard if you have one and a marker or pencil.

Before you head out, preview the vocabulary with your child and go over any rules such as staying close to Mom, not picking flowers from other people’s yards, no touching animals/birds, etc.

Going on a Spring Scavenger Hunt with My Toddler

We did this activity in our own yard and neighborhood, but I think it would be great to try at a park or nature preserve in the future! Luckily, we live very close to an awesome state park with tons of trails.

When we did this scavenger hut, we circled the pictures that we found, but you could also take a picture of each item with your phone! (When I’ve done other scavenger hunts with elementary-aged students, they enjoy taking a picture or video of the items they found.)
