Kids Getting Bored at Home? Try This Indoor Scavenger Hunt

April 1st, 2020

After all the favorite games have been played, recipes have been baked, and movies have been watched, it’s almost inevitable: The kids will get bored.

Our advice? The best way to beat boredom is with a simple shift in perspective, which is exactly what this indoor scavenger hunt does. It encourages little thinkers to view the items in your home in new ways. Challenge them to come up with their own list after they’ve collected all the items on this one, and, if you really want to stretch this activity out, have them draw a picture of each item. Don’t worry, mom and dad—you’ve got this!
