A Color Hunt

I’m a big fan of scavenger hunts.  I loved them when I was a kid and I love them now with my own child.  I can hide anything, really, and D is off seeking in a moment’s notice.  D has gone on a treasure hunt, searching for lost silver (blocks wrapped in foil).  She’s hunted for letters and numbers and matched them on paper.  This past weekend, she went on a color hunt.  She searched for objects around the house that matched the color construction paper I laid out on the table.  Most of the items were found in her arts & crafts baskets, but some creativity was used as well.  She found an orange in the kitchen and black remotes and iPhone in the living room.




There are so many different scavenger hunts, the list is endless.  They are fun for just about any age and can be as simple or complicated as you want to make them.  A helpful hint: they are a perfect way to keep kids occupied while you’re making dinner or doing some house chores.

After D was happy with her color finds, she wanted to capture some up-close stills.  Here are a few shots from her perspective – she has a microscopic eye, don’t you think?
