Summer Treasure Hunt

About This Primary Resource

A two page summer themed treasure hunt activity featuring a list of things to find, touch, smell and hear. It's designed to get children outside exploring the natural world, using all of their senses. Because of the diverse nature of the things included on the list it is perhaps best used on a trip to a park. However, you could also use it in a school setting or a garden, you could always use photographs of things that you don't have in your environment.

The children should not be encouraged to disturb live insects or pick live flowers but if possible to take photos of them when they are found.

The download includes a version with editable text boxes in case you need to alter the text or translate into a different language.

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.
