Math Scavenger Hunt for Kids

Make Math fun and hands-on with this Math Scavenger Hunt for kids.

After the Garden scavenger hunt and Five Senses scavenger hunt my son wanted to do more of such hunts. I thought of incorporating math for his next scavenger hunt.

It is easy to set up. You just need a print out of the sheet and you are good to go. It is ideal for ages 4-6 years.

This math scavenger hunt covers topic shapes and numbers which are covered in preschools. Ask your child to search the things listed in the sheet. If your child is too young to read, you can read it to them and ask them to gather the items mentioned in the list.
