Great activity for day hiking kids: Color Find

Find two different objects on this trail that are green.
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 Color Find.

Announce a color and have your child try to find five objects of that color on the hike. If you have multiple children on the hike, turn it into a friendly competition; the first child to identify five objects of that color gets to select the next color.

Materials: None needed

Ages: 4 to 12
