What’s Included in the Color Scavenger Hunt File?

The file includes two different printable scavenger hunts.

One of the hunts instructs your student to search for colors outside. Go on a color walk to see what you can find.

The other hunt instructs your student to search for colors inside.

Your student will look for a rainbow of colors:

  • Red
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • Black
  • White
  • Gray
  • Brown
  • Green
  • Orange

For extra fun, give your student a magnifying glass and allow her to carefully examine the items as she finds them.

Print multiple copies of the fun scavenger hunt printable because you can use them again and again–finding different items each time!

Benefits of the Color Scavenger Hunts

Scavenger hunts aren’t just for fun; they provide many benefits for your student.

  • Scavenger hunts boost observation skills. As your child looks for objects, he will develop better observation skills.
  • Scavenger hunts require movements; this promotes gross motor development.
  • A scavenger hunt can provide safe sensory input for your student as your student hears, smells, sees, and touches things around her.
  • If you work on the scavenger hunt as a team, it will promote cooperation and social skills development.
  • The color scavenger hunts will also increase creative and critical thinking skills as your child has to determine how to find and choose the color objects.
