Seattle Scavenger Hunt

Planning a visit to Seattle?  Or do you live in Seattle and want to enjoy a downtown day with your kids?  Our awesome photo scavenger hunt will keep your kids walking, happy, and engaged!  Actually adults like it too.  It’s just plain fun and helps anyone enjoy the details of our fabulous city.

The area covered by our scavenger hunt is the downtown core.  Walk on 1st Avenue between Pike’s Place and Pioneer Square.  As a round trip, you will want to come back along 3rd with short detours to see the library and the opera hall.  End up at Westlake Center and take the monorail to Seattle Center.  You’ll capture all the pictures within this route.  You can get off at Seattle Center (no photos there – makes for a long day) or buy a round trip ticket in advance and just enjoy the ride.

Northward bound

Printed all our reservations and put them into The travel book.  Just created packing lists for the kids … not sure if we’re expecting a tropical vacation or an arctic blizzard.  Hoping for a little of both, wildlife, native art, and at least one sighting of the aurora borealis …

Here’s our packing list:  Packing List – June in Alaska

 

In defense of the worksheet

Teachers use worksheets all the time.  Why?  Because kids love them!  Then teachers overuse them and worksheets get a bad wrap.  But, trust us, take our worksheet (call it a scavenger hunt) to a museum and set your kids loose.  It’ll be you begging to sit down or go to the gift shop while your kids are still roaming around, looking at art.

No one can get bored in this museum! Museum Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunt is currently sized to fit on one page but you can enlarge and print on two pages for smaller hands.
