How to Set Up a Scavenger Hunt For Kids
Start with downloading your color scavenger hunt cards below.
Print as many cards as you have children or groups.
Cut each scavenger hunt card out.
In case you want to use them over and over again, I highly recommend laminating your cards. Then you can use them over and over.
Attaching the cards to the outside of a gift bag is also a fun idea. Simply tape the cards to the outside of the bag and then as the kids collect their colored items they can hold them in the bag.

Scavenger Hunt For Kids
The one thing you will want to make sure of before setting the kids off on their scavenger hunt is to make sure there are all the colored items around the house.
You can also give them clues leading them to their different colors. We find it lots of fun placing different colors in different areas of the yard so that they have to check all different areas.
The first to find all the colors of the scavenger hunt wins!
Rainbow Scavenger Hunt Questions
Now that you are ready for your scavenger hunt, here are a few questions you might have
It is a great way for your toddlers and preschoolers to get to know their colors better. It allows them to independently search for each of the colors.
We find that the easiest way to have a scavenger hunt with preschoolers is to make sure there are items of every color setup in your scavenger hunt area. Grab enough for each child and place them throughout the house and or yard.
It's important to have at least one item of every color. In the case you want to make it that much more difficult, you could leave one color out and see if they can use their imagination.
