Hand your kids a camera and head outside for an outdoor activity you can do together. Give it a shot—you may find that your kids like to play with your camera almost as much as their electronic games and gadgets.

How to plan an A to Z photo scavenger hunt that will get your family outside exploring your neighborhood or park and begging to stay out longer.

Why an A to Z Scavenger Hunt?

Scavenger hunts are a great way to engage with your kids, but the thought of all the intensive preparation—the maps, checklists and other considerations—can be enough to stop you before you begin. My Kids’ Adventures makes scavenger hunts and treasure hunts easy. And this A to Z scavenger hunt is the easiest one yet! For most families, the school year is busy! There are so many things to get done: homework, reading, car pools and after-school activities all go by in a blur, leaving not much time for fun family activities. An outdoor letter scavenger hunt helped our family get outside doing something fun together without any preparation or mess. I wanted to share it with your family, too.
