Benefits of the Fall Scavenger Hunt

This autumn scavenger hunt is great as a go-along with your fall theme. It provides 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 (feel the crunchy leaves in the pile, taste the sweet blackberries, listen to the squirrels chattering in the trees, etc.)
  • If you work on the scavenger hunt as a team, it will promote cooperation and social skills development.
