Benefits of the Fun Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt

This holiday scavenger hunt is great as a go-along with your Thanksgiving 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 bumpy pinecone, taste the apple, smell the turkey cooking in the oven, see the shiny red cranberries, etc.)
  • If you work on the scavenger hunt as a team, it will promote cooperation and social skills development.
