Here is a little secret for some of the checkboxes like “Find a green animal”…. I print up a green animal picture and hide it! There’s really no reason to BUY anything for this St. Patrick’s Day scavenger hunt. You could, of course, head to the Dollar Store and find a green teddy bear – something like that. But if you are in a bind, a printed photo will do just fine.

You can time them as they race around the house looking for all of these items on the list. Or you can allow them to explore at their leisure. It’s really up to you and how you want to play it. I think the younger they are, the less of a timed event it should be.
My two older kids love to compete against one another. So, I usually just let them have at one another on their own. They don’t need me anymore to get involved. I usually just hand them the St. Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt and then they are off to the races! LOL
