My family are members of the Bronx Zoo and frequently visit throughout the year. It is one of our favorite things to do when the weather is on our side. But as you know, large zoos can feel a bit… endless at times. If you have children with short attention spans, there comes a point where you lose them.

That’s why I created this zoo scavenger hunt for kids! It is something for our littles to accomplish as we leisurely stroll through one exhibit to the next. Our family gets to spend the entire day at the zoo while my boys get to WINNNNNNNNNNNNNN. I think you know what I’m talking about here.

Perfect For Kids Looking For A Challenge Game

Do you have gamers in your house? I most certainly do. This “win” mentality takes over everything that we do. Who can eat breakfast fast enough? Who can blink the least amount of time while walking to the car? Who can not breathe the longest? I’m like… what is happening?! I just want to LIVE!

But while we are at the Bronx Zoo, I do like to whip out this free zoo scavenger hunt printable because it makes my life easier. I am not going to lie.

My sons have the TIME OF THEIR LIVES looking for all the animals on the list and we all get a day out in the sun enjoying all that NYC has to offer.

  • Elephant
  • Giraffe
  • Monkey
  • Snake
  • Bird
  • Seal
  • Penguin
  • Lemur
