Ways to make walking fun!

Sometimes getting little ones from the car to your destination can be boring, especially when you are walking a block or two. But, as Mary Poppins would put it, “You find the fun and snap, the job’s a game.” Start your visit right when you park the car. KidsQuest has created a variety of scavenger hunts that are a fun activity for the family to do on the way to the museum.

Scavenger hunts are a great learning tool for early learners, Not only do they exercise both the body and mind, but they teach teamwork and problem solving. The other great thing about scavenger hunts is that they can change depending on the season or things your children are learning in school. Below you will find one for end of summer that will help make your short walk fun and exciting!

How many things can you find on your walk to KidsQuest? KidsQuest wants to hear from you. Share photos of your scavenger hunt and your visit to KidsQuest on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
