What is it
It is a simple, fun card game that can be played anywhere… at a picnic in the park, on a walk in the woods, at the beach… anywhere!
It can be played by children and adults alike and no two games will be the same. The scavenger hunt game consists of 33 uniquely designed cards which represent different sensations and sensory characteristics you can find outdoors in nature. The cards are presented in a small drawstring bag which can be used to collect your natural treasures.

What our experts think
This simple scavenger hunt game is fantastic for encouraging children to get active and engage with the world around them. We found that it needed minimal explanation – the children quickly worked out what they needed to do and there was lots of running around! The game also encouraged healthy competition as the children raced to find their objects first.
The game is great for getting children to look at things they wouldn’t normally look at, which not only develops their observation skills but also teaches them about the world around them. We liked that it challenged the children to get creative, for example drawing lines on a piece of paper for ‘something stripy’ and even combining cards to challenge themselves further e.g. something ‘hard’ and ‘heavy’.
