Happy Friday Everyone!!

Today I have a printable just in time for Earth Day! Our playgroup is heading out to a wilderness park on Monday.  We thought it would be fun to have the kids do a “Wilderness Scavenger Hunt”.   I made this printable up so they knew what to find on their little hunt.  Our group is mainly kids 3 and under so it is not a big list.


I’ve included the download below so you can have your own hunt! It would make for a fun Earth Day activity.

Wilderness Scavenger Hunt

Now a scavenger hunt wouldn’t be complete without some bags to collect all your finds in!  My inspiration for these bags came from Sun Scholars.

I made these simple bags in less than 15 minutes following these steps.


1. I started with a piece of scrap fabric that measured 12 X 17.  I folded in the 2 opposite sides 1/2 of an inch and pressed. Then using a straight stitch sew up those folds.

2. I folded the top about 1/2 of an inch and pressed. Then I folded it down another inch and pressed. Sew along the bottom of that fold leaving a tunnel (casing) for your twine.

3.  Fold fabric in half (right sides together) and sew along the edges. Don’t sew all the way to the top!  You will want to stop right at the beginning of the casing. You don’t want to close up that tunnel you just made.

4. After sewing turn it right side out.

5.  It’s best to use a needle, work the twine through the casing at the top.

6.  Add some beads and double knot the ends. Leave enough twine at the end so you can open your bag fully. Let me know if you run into any snags!

Hope everyone has a great weekend! We are headed to the beach today. The weather here has been gorgeous and I need a tan on my lily white skin!


Linking up to these great parties!
