Eye-Spy Nature Scavenger Hunt

By | June 28th, 2019|Categories: Crafts/Activities, For the Boys|Tags: , , , |

This Eye-Spy Nature Scavenger Hunt will add some excitement to your next family hike or camping trip. Nature Scavenger Hunt In my opinion, there are few things better than being high up in the mountains surrounded by nature and the beauties of the earth.  Since we live in Utah, we try to take advantage of the mountains as much as we can.
