We are all spending a bit more time at home these days, doing the social distancing thing the best that we can! At this point, the kids might be starting to get a little bit antsy to get out of the house and for a new activity.
Neighborhood Alphabet Hunt
Here comes the Neighborhood Alphabet Hunt to the rescue!
Let me tell you how we did things in our neighborhood. The Neighborhood Alphabet Hunt was announced in our neighborhood Facebook Group. There was a date given and the simple directions were shared: families are asked to post a letter in their front window. Then the kids walk through the neighborhood on the day(s) of the hunt to try and find every letter on their Alphabet Hunt List.
Once the dates of the hunt were posted, members of the community commented saying they would be happy to hang a letter in their front window. The person in charge then assigned each participant a letter by commenting back on their participation post.
Of course, we had far more than 26 families that wanted to participate, but after the first 26 letters were assigned, anyone else that wanted to join in the fun picked any letter and hung it by their front door as well!
Depending on the age of your kids and the size of your neighborhood, this can be a multi-day activity! It’s also a great opportunity to work on colors as well.
