Give Your Kids Fun Math Challenges with Scavenger Hunt Activities

Want to easily add a bit of excitement to your math lessons? Try a shape scavenger hunt!

When my boys started learning or reviewing shapes as part of their homeschool math lessons, I thought it would be cool to give them some hands-on activities that got them up and moving.

If your kids are like mine, they don't care for sitting still for too long. (Honestly, I don't like sitting still!)

That's why we use brain breaks and fun days to keep our learning adventures interesting.

Scavenger hunts are other awesome ways to get kids interested in a topic. My boys tell me that our color, letter, and number scavenger hunts have been fantastic fun 🙂

When I surprised my boys with these shapes scavenger hunts, they immediately wanted to get started. After explaining the basic "rules", they jumped right in and had fun exploring the shapes in our world.

Creative Ways to Boost Learning Fun with These Shape Scavenger Hunts

You can certainly use these shapes scavenger hunts in any way you like.

Here are a few ideas and tips:

  1. Print out enough copies of each shape scavenger hunt for your kids. You might want to have a few extra copies on hand in case they ask to do more!
  2. There are two sizes of each scavenger hunt. One size is a full page. The other has two of the same scavenger hunt on one full page (two half-sheets). Younger kids might prefer to use the full page version for coloring in larger shapes.
  3. Give your kids crayons, color pencils, or markers to fill in shape when they find it.
  4. Challenge your kids to identify the shape before coloring. You can encourage your kids to describe the shape and what makes it unique.
  5. Older kids can be challenged with spelling the name of the shape.

For a bit of extra fun, let your kids use stickers or stamps to fill in the shapes as they go.
