Featured Activity: happyly Scavenger Hunts for your Outdoor Excursions
Set Fun Goals during Exercise and Fresh Air to Preserve Smiles on Little Faces
Keeping our children engaged while social distancing takes a bit more creativity. Hiking and biking are excellent options for exercise, or simply explore your backyard to get some fresh air. Scavenger hunts are a great way to make such activities goal-oriented and add an extra layer of fun.
For those stuck in your homes, indoor scavenger hunts can be equally stimulating! We have created the perfect at home scavenger hunt that you can access here on our blog as well!
