We love our scavenger hunts! First, I printed themed cards with the numbers 1-10. Next, I hid them all over the house. Then I gave Madelynn a clipboard, recording sheet and some crayons and sent her off to find the first card. We are working on number recognition, so after finding a card Madelynn would tell me the number, then color it on her paper.
To spice things up I gave Madelynn a different action to do as she searched for her next card. My favorites? Fly like a bird, crawl like a turtle, gallop like a horse, run like a cheetah, slither like a snake, walk like a bear, tiptoe like a ballerina, and hop like a rabbit. This definitely helped to get a little extra energy out and prevented her from just slowly walking to each new card. I created different levels of response sheets to practice counting sets and writing numbers as well. If you’d like a copy you can grab them here.
