A scavenger hunt is a great way to keep the kids entertained on the Fourth of July!

I absolutely love the Fourth of July and look forward to it every year. We go to Idaho Falls, ID where the people know how to do the Fourth of July. From a parade in the morning to the best fireworks this side of the Mississippi River in the evening, it’s such a great place to celebrate our country’s birthday! Idaho Falls isn’t a huge town, which gives the holiday an even funner feel. We always have a barbecue with my husband’s family and the kids have the best time with their cousins. I made this Fourth of July Scavenger Hunt with all those awesome kids in mind. They’re going to have a blast doing this at the family barbecue or while we’re waiting for the fireworks to start.

What is a scavenger hunt?

If you’re new to scavenger hunts, here’ s a little explanation! A scavenger hunt is a game where those playing have a list of specific items that they have to find. These items aren’t usually purchased to play the game, rather, items that are found around the house, the neighborhood, etc. My kids love scavenger hunts!

Scavenger hunts are so fun for kids! They're going to love this Fourth of July version.
