Sometimes you see something pinned on Pinterest over and over and over and you have to wonder: Is it really worth all the attention? In our series Pin-tested we take something you’ve seen a thousand times on Pinterest and put it to the test.
I have a board on Pinterest titled “Cool things for Keegan” to which I pinned the following pin to a few weeks ago:
Today was such a beautiful day, I thought we’d give the nature scavenger hunt (created by The Taylor House) a try. Sometimes activities I think Keegan will love go over like a lead balloon, so I was really excited to see his eyes light up when I explained what we were going to do.
We headed outside and began searching for items on the list. “Something fuzzy” was a bit challenging, and one of the first target items we tried for, but we eventually found a fuzzy leaf and then we were off to the races.
Keegan really enjoyed this activity and kept saying we were “like real scientists!” If you’re looking for something to do on a pretty day that will get curious kids’ minds going, I’d highly recommend trying a nature scavenger hunt. Try the Taylor House list or make up your own, but get outside and have some fun!
