I love a fun project I can do with my daughter that does not create a big mess. I’m sharing with you this fun little Free Indoor Photo Scavenger Hunt for kids that is not only fun but a great learning tool too!
More about my Photo Scavenger Hunt
This scavenger hunt is somewhat different from your typical scavenger hunt. It is a game that your child can play alone. This is perfect for my daughter since she is basically an only child because her siblings are adults.
My Indoor Photo Scavenger Hunt was inspired by an app my daughter loved playing with when she was younger. This was before she could read and the app read to her what she needed to look for, then she took a photo of it. Once the mission was complete, she brought my phone back to me. The app showed the results of her photos, with a story that went along with it. It was a really neat app but is no longer available. I wanted something that was similar to the app. So, I created this scavenger hunt. Though it does not have the story aspect, it is still a lot of fun.

Scavenger hunts allow kids to practice problem-solving in a tangible way. It helps to reinforce and act-out methods they have been taught by parents or teachers in a physical way, leading to increased retention of the lessons.
One of the other great things about this type of scavenger hunt, I can send my daughter off to work on it while I do my own things. When she’s done, she can share with me all of the photos she took.

Kids can make this really funny when they are creative. If they are not creative, maybe this will encourage creativity in them. The Scavenger Hunt is such a great indoor activity for your kids.
