Scavenger Hunt 보물 찾기
Spending time outdoors is one of my favorite things to do with my little guy. Anything I’ve read about child development emphasizes incorporating nature into daily life. Personally, I love the change of scenery, getting fresh air, and sunlight. Plus, Vitamin D is good for the immune system! A scavenger hunt is a great way to add some fun to your park visit. And, you can use it to reinforce new vocabulary with your child. The search opens up a lot of possibilities for dialogue. Ask them questions about the different characteristics of the items they find. See if they can name the colors of objects. Use the items to practice counting.
There are a lot of ways you can put together your own scavenger hunt. If you have flashcards, gather a set and go for a walk together playing “eye-spy.” Or, I recently came across this set by Melissa and Doug which includes a really cute bag for collecting your treasures.
And, of course I’ve made a fun freebie for you to use. Can’t find your color ink? Is it rainy outside? Don’t worry! I’ve got a black and white version ready for coloring!
My free printable has nine items for you and your child to find. Look for a feather 깃털 (git-teol), an ant 개미 (gae-mi), a butterfly 나비 (na-bi), a flower 꽃 (kkot), a leaf 잎 (ip), a rock 돌 (dol), a bird 새 (sae), a bee 벌 (bell), and grass 잔디 (jan-di).
I’ve included a few prompts below to help with conversation ideas as you go about your search. (I had to do a little bit of studying beforehand to refresh my memory on vocabulary for textures.) And, after several requests, I’ve added romanized Korean for anyone still working on their Hangul. 😉
Questions, suggestions? Notice any funky Korean? Let me know. Thank you!
