ABC Scavenger Hunt

What you will need:

  • Sticky notes
  • Marker
  • Objects from around your home

If you are thinking about what you can do with your children indoors, we have a fun and easy activity that uses everything you already have at home, and ABC Scavenger Hunt.

How to Play:

  • Using the sticky notes, put each letter of the alphabet on a sheet. Lay the notes on a large table, or your floor, leaving space for the items the children find on their hunt.
  • Have your children go around the house, into the different rooms looking for items that start with the letters of the alphabet. Some letters (Like X) may be a bit of a challenge.
  • You can before you start, work on a list with your children with items that start with the different letters.
