Hunt things

Age group

These educational and kinesthetic activities make the discovering a big fun.

Sensory play sparks imagination, allowing a child to investigate the boundaries of the five senses-hear, smell, sight, touch, and taste. The exposure to various textures has a positive impact on a child’s sensitivity to foods and develops a sense of comfort with new stimuli. There is research that shows it supports language development as parents and educators “talk through” the characteristics that each sensory activity highlights.

For a fun group approach, get into small teams.


  • just the things around us

Treasure hunt around the house


The children have to hunt the followings: something round, then something “taller than you” , then something with numbers on it, then something that can “fit in your hand”, then something that makes a sound, then something that “you wear on your feet”.

Alphabet hunt around the house


Start by writing out the alphabet together so the child has a visual of what letter he/she is looking for. Can you find something around the house that starts with each letter of the alphabet? For example: can you find an apple (A)? Can you find a book (B)? Can you find a coat (C)?
