A Garden Treasure Hunt

I wanted a quick afternoon activity to occupy two tired children – and this was great! So easy to set up, they enjoyed it and it kept them busy for quite a while!

The garden treasure hunt…

I took our homemade clipboards and clipped a piece of paper labelled A to Z on to each one…

I explained to them that they just had to find one thing that started with each letter of the alphabet in the garden, and record it in some way on the paper.

Alfie decided to write a strike beside each letter when he found something, whereas Maya decided to write down the word.

This was great for two different age groups – one learning beginning sounds of letters, another learning vocabulary..
