Great game for day hiking kids: Spelling Bee

Generally, exploring and discovery is enough for kids, but sometimes even they can grow bored with that and become restless. Remember that they naturally have shorter attention spans than adults.

Fortunately, there are lots of tried and true activities you can do on the trail that’ll keep kids from getting bored. Among them is Spelling Bee.

Challenge each other to spell names of objects spotted on the trail. This works best with older elementary school kids.

Materials: None needed.

Ages: 9 and up.
