Quick Spring Outdoor Activity

Nature Scavenger Hunt


Get the kids outdoor with this fun activity:

Print out the following list and give the kids 15 minutes to find as much items as possible.
Best is to make teams that compete against each other, but be sure to set strict rules about where they can - and cannot- go. (for safety)

My kids love this!
Great activity for family reunions, camping, parties or just neighborhood kids gathering.

Card games for kids


Number of Players: 2 to 5

Age Range: 4 years and older

Materials: one standard deck of cards

How to Play:

    • The cards are shuffled and dealt out completely. Some players may receive one card more than others. The players put them in a pile face down. They are not allowed to see the cards.

 

    • The first player turns over the first card of his pile and puts it face up, in the center of the table.

 

    • The next players continue to add a face up card to the open pile in the center of the table, until somebody turns up a Jack (Knave).

 

    • When a Jack is turned up, all the players try to slap the Jack as quickly as they can. The player who is first to put his hand on the Jack wins the face up pile and can add all the cards from the face up pile to his own face down pile.

 

    • The player on the left continues to make a new face up pile and the game continues.

 

    • If a player runs out of cards, he has one change to get new cards by slapping the first Jack that shows up. If he isn’t the first to hit the card, he is out of the game.

 

    • The winner is the first player to collect all the cards.
