Things you need
- List of directions
- Prizes or items to hide around the house.
Take your child on a fun scavenger hunt by offering clues, encouraging them to think carefully about their position and helping them to develop spatial awareness. Get their friends involved and see who can get to the mystery prize first!
Choose a ‘prize’, and hide it somewhere in your home.
Create a scavenger hunt using your own clues that are all about being in the right position. In your clues, use words like:
For example, "Take three steps forward, then turn anti-clockwise", "Look beneath the couch" or "Walk in the opposite direction until you get to a piece of furniture".
Get your child’s friends involved or if you have a large family, work in teams to see who can get to the mystery prize first!
