mountain treasure hunt challenge
Keep the kids keen with this tick-list challenge of things to spot in the hills!
Long walks in exciting places are good for children, keeping their bodies active and their minds open to new experiences. But even the most enthusiastic of mini-walkers may end up a little bored after a while.
A treasure hunt is a great way to keep them engaged - a selection of objects or scenes to spot, perhaps with a reward at the end if they've found them all. Of course, it can be as much fun creating these I-spy mountain challenges as it is to play them, but to help you out we've created a sheet of 12 different 'treasures' to be found that you can download, print off, and take with you next time you're heading to the mountains with (or even without) children.
