Backyard Photo Scavenger Hunt – Free Printables!

backyard scavenger hunt-1Finding things for the kids to do to keep them engaged (and out of trouble!) all summer can be an adventure all on its own. It’s always good to have a few things up your sleeve to keep their little hands occupied so you can keep the peace! For Design Dazzle’s Summer Camp this year, I came up with a Backyard Photo Scavenger Hunt.

Thanks, Cheryl! The camera part was fun, but it took them ages to find everything and they had such a good time hunting--and we got to make the activity take even longer by putting the photos in a journal
