Alphabet Scavenger HuntQuestion man

• Find as many outdoor objects as possible that begin with each
letter of the alphabet. Put them in a paper sack.
• Have them find the objects listed below, or any object beginning
with each alphabet letter
• Adapt for indoors by hiding objects around the room. Scouts write
it on the list as they see each object.
Possible Items to Find:
Ant, Bee, Caterpillar, Dandelion, Eagle, Flower,
Grasshopper, Hay, Iris, Jaybird, Kite, Leaf, Mountain, Nest,
Onion, Pine needle, Quill, Rabbit, Snake, Tent, Umbrella,
Violet, Weed.

*Have a prize for the person or group who has the most objects located.

Another idea for the month would be to
have ingredients to put a trail mix together.
Each family can bring one item, then they
all put them together.
You could use things like nuts, raisins,
cranberries, pretzels, granola, any dried fruit, and candy. (Skittles work well--they don't melt.)
Anything dried or hard that will keep for a long time works well as part of a trail mix.
