With the Kids

Hiking Scavenger Hunt Printable for Kids

We are an outdoor family! We love to discover new places, especially with our fun and adventurous hiking scavenger hunt printable! Even in the rainy city of Seattle, you’ll see us out and about on some sort of exploration. I’ve recently found a new area for another family hike about 30 minutes away and I’m excited to take the kids out and about!

Getting us where we need to go, I’m happy to have partnered with Subaru for our next family adventure. To make things a little more fun, I’ve had Juliann Law whip up this fantastic Hiking Scavenger Hunt printable for kids to mark off as we adventure. We’ll be on the hunt for all kinds of nature items, checking them off as we go. From logs and moss to animal holes and insects.

Download and print out this hiking scavenger hunt printable. You can make one for the whole family or each child can have their own. We have a color or black and white version. If you pick the black and white version to print out, the kids could do the coloring before you head out for your hike.

Tips for your Hiking Scavenger Hunt:

  • print out a new scavenger hunt printable for each different hike you go on, seeing what fun items were found
  • print out and laminate this page to use with a wipe off marker again and again. You can also use a plastic sheet protector as well.
  • turn your paper over and write down all the other exciting things you spotted
  • turn your paper over and draw or color something new you found.

Since we try to find new places to hike each time we go, we’re going to print out a new one for every hike. Then we can remember what cool things we found for each place. But… because we live in very wet weather, we’ll be placing our paper into a plastic sheet protector to stay dry as we hike and search!

We’re all set to head out on our hiking adventure. We’ll strap the kids into the Subaru and head out to the woods for some good family fun. I’ll be sharing all about our adventures in the coming weeks!

  1. Very happy I stumbled on this! How fun!! The wife will be out of town all day Saturday, so this will be great for my 4 year old son and me! Guys day!! Thanks so much for this perfect hunt!

  2. I’m going to print these out and hand out to our kids during one of our Kids Workshops. These are awesome and will help get the kids outside and enjoy looking at what is around them. Thank you.

  3. Yesterday was lovely and sunny and cold. We are lucky to have beautiful school grounds that are perfect for this activity. Rainbow Class LOVED this hunt! Thank you.

  4. I’m going to print some of these. We’re up in Vancouver and find all of the same things on our hikes. But you forgot slugs! Can’t go 5 feet without another slug!

    1. Haha! We are the same. In fact, I can walk out on my back porch and find them 2 feet away! It will have to be an item added to the list on the back of the paper for sure!
