Fishing

Room to breathe

TU Family Field Trip: Streamside scavenger hunt

Thoughts were racing in my mind the other day when I started to panic about how we were going to keep our small children occupied for an undefined period of time thanks to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. It was then, while looking for flour, I thought of it. An outdoor scavenger hunt should be on our list. Scavenger hunts are simple and have been around for generations. It’s one of life’s classic activities. Find something, write it down and move on to the next item. Adults, kids and even crazy bird dogs can easily find entertainment in a scavenger hunt
