Enjoy this weather and the season with this fall scavenger hunt for kids!
I don’t know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but here in Texas we can finally say it’s beautiful. Those 100 degree days are brutal. Playing outside can only happen after dark or in the whee hours of the morning. So with fall here, our family is determined to embrace it, because in just a few short weeks though it will still be fall – Christmas season will be here.

Scavenger Hunt Rules
Use common sense… if you have a toddler, don’t send them out alone. Make sure to establish rules in who they can talk to and where they can go to find the items.
Either set a time limit and see who can find the most items within a set amount of time. Or, if you are doing this will a toddler, just enjoy watching them find each item and use this as a checklist.
Enjoy the fall season while it’s here. We are all in a rush with our everyday lives. Find sometime for some family fun. Over on Babble, I’ve rounded up 10 fun fall activities for toddlers. These include outdoor adventures and what to do on a rainy day. Make the most of the season, because remember – Christmas will be here before you know it and fall will just be a distant memory (womp!).
