When to Play a Nature-Themed Video Scavenger Hunt

What would be a great opportunity for a nature-themed video scavenger hunt? Here are a few of my favorite ideas:

  • at a Birthday Party with a nature theme or outdoor setting (woodland theme, birthday at a park, etc.)
  • as a homeschool or classroom activity related to botany, the environment, wildlife, etc.
  • in the backyard, as a boredom buster activity for kids during the long summer days
  • as a family while hiking or visiting national parks

While video scavenger hunts are great for groups, this activity can also be completed in pairs or individually.
