Our road trip series continues. We have 2 additional printables that we have added to our Scavenger Hunt. It’s as bright and colorful as the first scavenger hunt printable too. Children like to choose just like adults. If you have more than one child they may not be interested in searching for the same items. Who wants to hear over and over, I don’t want that one or I’m not going to be able to find those things before the hunt begins. Keeping children occupied during a road trip can be challenging. If you’re like me, you don’t want electronic devices to be the solution to everything. Especially, when there’s so much more that we can be enjoying.
What’s the goal of the trip? Isn’t it to arrive at your destination safely, create great memories along the way and enjoy your time when you arrive. Why get into a struggle and ruin the memory while you’re trying to get there. Pouting, crying and unhappy kids can make the trip seem much longer than is really is. Give each of them their choice of scavenger hunt printables, a snack, drink, and let the trip begin.
Searching for different items and trying to finish first makes the hunt exciting and challenging. Take their mind off of how long it’s taking to arrive at your destination by getting them focused on their surroundings. One of your greatest memories will be the kids searching for the items, the conversations you will engage in while hunting for them and the peace you will find by having happy children. Now that is priceless.
Print the game on stock game if it’s available. Stock paper is heavier than regular copy paper, and won’t tear as easily. Purchasing clip boards is a great idea too.
