Five Senses Scavenger Hunt at Home
If you are looking for a way to make your child’s learning time interesting and fun, this Five Senses Scavenger Hunt might be just what you need. My son recently studied about five senses in his school. So I thought of doing this fun Five Senses Scavenger Hunt with him at home.
A scavenger hunt is a game in which you have to find a number of items given in the list. In Five Senses Scavenger Hunt, kids will explore and identify things that go with each of their five senses.
Why I love Scavenger Hunts for Kids?
The best thing about children’s scavenger hunts is that they do not require much at all. They are simple, cheap, and can often be done using stuff that you already have at home.
It provides hands-on and interactive learning.
You can play scavenger hunt both indoors as well as outdoors.
No matter how many times you play with the same list, you will find new things each time.
Five Senses Scavenger Hunt
With this Five Senses scavenger hunt, my son had a lot of fun. Literally, we have played three times in three days. This activity allows children to explore all five senses, including see, hear, smell, taste, and touch to find their treasures on the list.
Here’s a look at the list.
If you wish to take out the print, please download it from here. It is totally free!
If you wish to play with the same list, again and again, you can laminate it. My son can read now. So he found it pretty easy to read the list on his own and complete the same very easily without any help. I am so proud of him! 🙂
Here’s a list of items he collected
- Find something that tastes SWEET – Kit Kat Chocolate
- Find something that smells GOOD – Marigold Flower
- Find something that feels SOFT – Shawl
- Find something that is STRIPED – Pouch
- Find something that smells BAD – Shoes
- Find something that tastes BITTER- Dark Chocolate
- Find something that feels HARD – Car Launcher
- Find something that tastes SALTY – Salt
- Find something that tastes SPICY – Green Chilly
- Find something that is BLUE – Water Bottle
- Find something that makes NOISE – Alexa
You can also give a basket to collect the treasure. I just instructed him to collect it on the table.
This sensory scavenger hunt game can be done as a fun game at birthday parties or can be given as a party favor too!
Hope you find it fun and do this Five Senses Scavenger Hunt with your child.
