MATH Scavenger Hunt For Busy Kids

As a mom of a busy toddler, I’m always looking for ways to engage him.   My son loves to be challenged with scavenger hunts.  Of course, I put a math twist on it!

Simply have your child go find math related items in their room.  (This could be played at a restaurant or other location of the well.)  Here is a list of ideas for kids to find:

  1. Shapes
  2. A certain number of objects
  3. Objects with actual numbers on them

Here are some other ideas to add to your game!

  • Offer a reward such as a treat or 10 minutes of cartoons
  • Make it a relay game by timing your child or setting up a running obstacle course as they find each object
  • Make it a timed race against other kids
  • Make it more of “Hide and Seek” with objects

 

Here is a printable of different 2D and 3D shapes!  SHAPES PRINTABLE

Ready? Set? Go!
