exploration lab:: alley hunt (or garden, park, house hunt)

You can find a rainbow even on sunny, dry days with this fun project. My kids love treasure hunts, and this one is a classic. Take an empty egg carton and paint the cups with rainbow colors (or for more of a challenge all greys or greens...) and head out. 

We try to have both natural examples as well as some alley trash. This is fun but also good for encouraging close looking. And as usual, as we walk, our minds loosen up and we start coming up with new ideas, projects and dreams. A good time spent for all. Happy hunting!


  1. This is a neat idea! I like that you included both natural items and trash items.
    Thanks for linking to "Look! What We Did!"

  2. Very cool!! Thank you for linking up!

  3. This is a wonderful idea. We will put it "in the bank" Or maybe we will do it after nap time!

  4. This is great! Mine are still little, but they will totally dig this- you're brilliant!!!

  5. This is really a great and creatative idea. I have no children but am going to try it anyway.

  6. I can't wait to do this with my Grandson! He's not quite two yrs. old yet, so may have to wait awhile to play this, but I've been stockpiling all kinds of fun things for the two of us to do together.


Please leave a comment! I love to hear from you!
