Winter Scavenger Hunt Printable

This scavenger hunt is the perfect activity to bring along with you the next time you head outdoors this winter! Laminate the cards to keep them from getting wet in the snow, and bring some dry erase markers.

If you can’t find someone carrying a hot cocoa outside (or hot drink) you can end the activity with a hot cocoa drink when you return inside!

You can get the free printable at the bottom of the post.

Tips for Using the Printable

  • If you do not laminate the sheets, you can also print on a thicker paper like white cardstock. This will be sturdier for kids if you’re using it for more than one walk or outing.
  • Kids will enjoy working together or having a friendly competition trying to see who can spot the items first.
  • Bring this with you during your outdoor activities and kids can try to check off any items they see.
  • Encourage kids to think of other items they can add to the list.

If you can’t find some of the items on the list, get creative and look for areas inside that might have the items (like books or shows!). You can even explore your winter gear, holiday decorations or kitchen to find all of the items.

The hot cocoa item can also be someone carrying a hot drink outside.
