Around the Home
Scavenger Hunt

This is a fun around the home scavenger hunt that can be done as a rainy day kids activity - or just to keep your kids busy while you are getting lunch or dinner ready. The best part about this indoor scavenger hunt is the kids won’t actually be “collecting” things - so it’s a no mess activity which we all can appreciate!
