I can’t believe we only have two weeks left of the A-Z Play at Home blog hop organised by Teach Me Mommy. We’ve really enjoyed taking part, even if we’re finding the final few letters quite hard! The idea behind the blog hop is to be inspired each week by a different letter to set up a different play or learning activity using items in the home.
The colour yellow scavenger hunt
I was a little stumped by the letter Y but thought a scavenger hunt would be fun. The weather has totally turned which means we’ve been spending a lot of time indoors. Our indoor scavenger hunt was so simple to set – because there was no setting up.
When the children got home from school I challenged them to find 5 things which were mainly yellow in the kitchen, dining room, living room and their bedrooms. They were allowed to do this together or on their own. The first thing my 5 year old picked up was her Sylvanian Families nursery bus and we quickly agreed that each item should fit in one hand!
Their collection of items quickly grew, although I have to say they got very side-tracked by all their toys. They kept looking through boxes and finding long lost toys which was quite funny.
They could only find 3 items in the kitchen.
But they were almost spoilt for choice in the dining room which is where all our craft supplies are kept.
It was quite fun to see so many every day items brought out and placed together. It made for a very beautiful flatlay which I’m not sure the kids appreciated as much as I did 🙂
I loved the fact this kept them so busy and would definitely do it again if I needed something to keep them busy for half an hour. Older children can be encouraged to write down a list of all the objects they find whilst younger children can have fun looking for the objects.
