Outdoor Scavenger Hunt Ideas and Today’s Free and Bargain Kindle Books (4/23)

A late Earth Day greeting to you all! Did you do anything to celebrate or even just acknowledge Earth Day? Although older than the Earth Hour, it hasn’t received as much hype. I remember a time when not a lot of people knew about the Earth Hour and all those who knew about it simply turned off their power for an hour on the designated night. And, of course, blogged about it. Nowadays, it has become this big event with parties and concerts that use up massive amounts of power and create a lot of noise pollution. Sometimes it really saddens me when a good thing becomes hip or cool because its essence is somehow usually lost in the assimilation. Anyway, I like Earth Day, and I like that there were a lot of free Earth Day-themed printable activities going around the homeschooling community. Amazon also had some great deals related to Earth Day, btw. But first, I’d like to share ideas for an Earth Day-related activity that we’ll be doing this weekend at the park. I’ve always loved hunts — treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, egg hunts, etc. Next to word challenges and quiz bees, they’re my favorite kind of game; that’s why I’m super interested in geocaching. Anyway, the following are some ideas I picked up on Pinterest for a fun outdoor scavenger hunt.
