Feel free to share it as well. I like when people are outside :)
Also, I know this is a scavenger hunt not a treasure hunt.
I'm normally very particular about the names of activities, but I thought this just sounded funner.
So I didn't tell my kids what we were doing. I just told them we had a surprise activity we would be doing Saturday. Clearly Olive was too excited because she woke up first thing that morning.

Minnie Mouse stickers are the best type of alarm clock
Also, that morning I was a message from a friend that they wanted to treat my kids to lunch. This isn't the first time they've blessed us. They would probably kill me for mentioning them publicly but wanted to say thank you to Michael and Kori Smith.
So we went to Cici's Pizza for lunch before we went out on the hunt. The kids still didn't know, so the whole meal, they were guessing what the activity was going to be. I jotted some of my favorite guesses:
Tie a rope to the fan and fly around the living room?
Meet the president?
Eat so much ice cream I throw up?
Buy a Daisy Duck face?
Since we live in the city, my friend said we could come out to their land and do it out there. When we got there, we got a surprise and got to have a friend come with us. Neela of course so pumped that we were doing something with "Nature" in the title. So we all looked over the list and headed off on the hunt.
A bug chewed leaf

A puddle of water
Also, don't love when kids have dirty little hands :)
An old toilet (not on the list :D )
Stick shaped like a letter
Big and small acorns
Plant with thorns

Circle shaped rock
"Daddy, wanna meet Hampton?"
We found a cocoon.
It was really such a fun little day. Plus, the kids were pretty worn out and super dirty by the end of it all. That's kind of how I gauge the success of a Saturday activity. :)
