We are all spending a lot more time at home these days and looking for ways to keep the kids busy. If you’re looking for ways to keep the kids entertained during this period of social distancing, why not send them on a neighborhood scavenger hunt?
Most kids love scavenger hunts and this one is perfect for a short walk around the neighborhood. You don’t need much and it’s a welcome aversion to cabin fever. Plus, it’s a great way to explore your neighborhood and scope out new favorite places to visit when things improve!
