Benefits of the Garden Scavenger Hunt

This garden scavenger hunt is great as a go-along with your garden 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 movement; this promotes gross motor development.
  • A scavenger hunt through the garden can provide safe sensory input for your student (touch a fuzzy leaf, look for a bright flower, taste a fruit or vegetable, and hear someone working with a tool).
  • If you work on the scavenger hunt as a team, it will promote cooperation and social skills development.
