My kids and I went to co-op today and had a nice little surprise. My daughter’s gym class did a scavenger hunt to look for items found in Fall. This was so much fun for all the kids. I decided I wanted to recreate it for use with my other kids ~ but with a twist! I wanted to make an Autumn Nature Hunt Bingo and I ended up making two, which can both be downloaded in the same file. One is slightly “easier” and might be appropriate for younger kids (like Kindergarten and First Graders). The other nature hunt bingo document can be used for any age, but might be better for grades 4th-7th.
We love nature walks, which is part of the Charlotte Mason lifestyle, but this is a different spin on it. So, here’s how nature hunt bingo works. Grab a sheet for each of your kids and let them take a crayon or marker with them. (These sheets would be great to laminate, too, so you can reuse them!!!) Then, as you go on a nature walk, or even a stroll through the neighborhood, as they find the items let them check them off. There are two ways we could play this:
- whoever gets 4 in a row is the winner (just like regular Bingo)
- let them check off as many as they can and whoever gets the most is the winner
- don’t have a winner, let the pictures spawn conversations and a fun little adventure

this is super cute! we always do an airport scavenger hunt when we travel (I am a travel blogger) we found it better, with two kids, to not have a winner but the goal is to cover the whole sheet and they can help each other. not because we are so anti-winning but more because with an 8 and 6 year old too much fights over competition !!!!

This is such a creative and cute way to kill some time and have something fun for the kids to do to celebrate the fall season!
These are great! We love nature walks. My girls are preschoolers, so we’ll definitely go with the easier one. Thanks!
My little guy loves to play bingo. We will definitely try this out!
What a fun way to really keep kids engaged in exploring the world around them. I really love this idea, thanks for sharing it!
