A neighbourhood scavenger hunt is a really fun way to explore the local area with kids.  If your kids are anything like mine they never feel inspired about the idea of going for a walk.  If I say we are going on a scavenger hunt they seem to get a lot more excited.

I’ve seen scavenger hunts work on days out we’ve been on time and time so really wanted to create one that Zena’s Suitcase readers could use whenever they wanted.

Neighbourhood Scavenger Hunt - Free printable download for your next family walk

I really wanted to design an outdoor scavenger hunt that everyone could do as soon as they left the house and I’m delighted to announce it’s ready to share with you all.  You can download this outdoor scavenger hunt for kids completely free and have it ready to go for your next family walk.

My kids love looking for the clues and ticking off what they find on their scavenger hunt list.  This printable scavenger hunt has both pictures and words so it’s suitable for all ages.


You could challenge your kids to complete a line or two at a time, or if you are keen to make the most of your time outside, try and find all the clues on the list in one outing.  There are 25 clues altogether so I hope it will keep the family busy for a good amount of time.

Neighbourhood Scavenger Hunt Ideas

I’m sure lots of people are going to be searching for outdoor scavenger hunt ideas over the next few months as we head towards the warmer weather.  We really hope you enjoy this free printable scavenger hunt when you are looking for fun ways to encourage the kids to leave the house.  I hope that it will encourage your kids to be more observant about where they live and there’s guaranteed to be some interesting discussions about what you find.

As well as the neighborhood scavenger hunt, I’ve also been working on another exciting project while we have been at home.  I have created another website called Arts & Crafts Kids Do.  I’m sharing resources and activities that the kids have been doing at home on my new site as well.


You will find an awesome nature scavenger hunt over there if that’s something you are interested doing with the kids.  We visited the local nature reserve with this printable scavenger hunt and we had a lot of fun completing it together.

  1. What a great game! I love learning through play. My after school club children would like this.

  2. This is a fantastic idea and might keep my twin girls from running off in opposite directions!

  3. Fabulous! Thank you! The children enjoy doing similar activities when we visit museums and castles but I never thought of doing a neighbourhood scavenger hunt.
