Benefits of the Indoor Scavenger Hunt for Kids
Going on a scavenger hunt indoors is great as a go-along with your house 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.
- If you are stuck indoors, looking for items around the house will help your student get the wiggles out.
- A scavenger hunt can provide safe sensory input for your student (feel the fuzzy teddy bear, taste the sweet fruit, smell something stinky or strong, listen to a musical instrument, etc.)
- If you work on the scavenger hunt as a team, it will promote cooperation and social skills development.
- Additionally, the bonus items will increase creative and critical thinking skills as your child has to determine what is soft, what is shiny, what is spotty, etc.
