6 {Printables} for National Scavenger Hunt Day


Did you know that May 24th is National Scavenger Hunt Day? I had no idea that was even a thing! But I love any reason to celebrate, so celebrate we must! To honor this fun day, I have some great ideas for kids of all ages.

You don’t have to celebrate just one day, of course. Use these hunts for your summer bucket list!
