All you need to kick start this fun activity is a printed copy of our indoor scavenger hunt and a pencil to check off each of the items found. Scavenger hunts like this are a great way to keep the kids active and provide some important no-screen time during a rainy day at home. Set rules with the participants like a time limit, teams or anything else you can think of to make it more customized. And no competition is complete without a prize. Reward a successful rainy day search with a sweet treat or a new little trinket.

Need to fill even more time? Use the scavenger hunt list and have the kids count as many of each item as they can throughout one room or even the entire house. Not only is it a fun activity, but it also encourages little ones to work on their math skills as they tally up their findings.
