Nature Sounds Scavenger Hunt

Who is excited to get outdoors this weekend and enjoy the last warm temps? Here is one idea to try that will bring together mindful intention with a fun family game!

Practicing mindfulness can include becoming aware of the sounds around you and taking them inward in the moment without judgement or interpretation. And what better way to try that out with your little humans than through an interactive scavenger hunt.

Scavenger hunts by design are usually more about finding physical items or clues that you can see and hold. I like that this idea adds a deeper challenge of finding sounds and allows more space for pause.

One of my favorite teacher questions to ask my kids is “What do you notice?” Are there different types of bird calls you are hearing? Is the water flowing fast or slow? Is the dog’s bark friendly or protective? What else would you add to this list?
