Scavenger Hunt Around the House

Let your imagination thrive with an at-home scavenger hunt. Parents can make a list, or everyone can make one together, of unique or funny things to find around the house. Don’t settle for something as simple as “find something blue.” Make things fun with “find something you could use as a pillow” or “find three items that look like they come from a magical world.” The possibilities are endless, and it makes you look at things a little differently.
