{FREE} Bug Scavenger Hunt!

We used this Bug Scavenger Hunt as part of our Nature Club, but you can use it for a bug theme, an insect theme, or just for fun!

We had a blast on our Bug Scavenger Hunt...it took a while, but we had several kiddos find all the bugs!  It's a wonderful outdoors activity, though it's hot enough that when they were done finding bugs outside, they were happy to come inside and get a drink!  

If you're not into scavenger hunts that involve bugs and other little critters, you can print two copies of the page, cut out the "cards," and use it to play memory-style games.  Or, if you're using it with an insect theme, you can sort the cards into "insects" and "not insects" piles!  There are loads of possibilities with these little guys!

Random Sidenote: I will admit that it was difficult for me to call this a "bug" scavenger hunt because there is an order of insects (Hemiptera) often called "true bugs" but, as I explained to our little friends, today we are using the word "bug" to mean "little critters!"

I'll be sharing a few more "bug" activities this week, so be sure to join us again if you're planning a bug theme!  In the meantime, be sure to check out our egg carton ladybugs, butterfly craft and song, or our ladybug count and clip cards!
