  2. Explore with Your Senses: Take children outdoors and encourage them to use their senses to discover the signs of spring listed on the scavenger hunt. If the scavenger hunt includes a prompt such as 'listen,' 'smell,' or 'feel,' have your children close their eyes and take deep breaths to really enhance the use of each sense.
  3. Colour or Tick Off: As children find each item on the scavenger hunt, they can colour in the illustrations or simply tick them off the list to keep track of their discoveries.
  4. Reflect and Share: After completing the scavenger hunt, take some time to reflect on the experience. Encourage children to share their favourite findings and discuss how using their senses enhanced their exploration of spring.
