I sent Maia on a color scavenger hunt through our house the other day. It was a spur-of-the-moment idea to keep her happily occupied while I cleaned up the kitchen to start dinner.
A Color Scavenger Hunt for Kids
First, I handed her a small bucket and asked her to find 10 orange items that would fit inside.
And then was happy to repeat the activity three more times.
With green items.
Then yellow items.
And finally, purple items.
I thought she would hunt all over the house, but she learned pretty quickly that there are multiples of each color in the studio.
She brought me bits of colored tissue paper, oil pastels, crayons, chalk, paint, wool, and paintbrushes.
It would be a good color-recognition activity for a toddler. For Maia it was more about the hunt and the novelty (we hadn’t done anything like this before).
And it bought me a few minutes to tidy up.
