Use these mindful scavenger hunts to help kids and young adults practice mindfulness in a fun and interactive way. Students will use their senses to find a variety of items outside or in the classroom while practicing mindfulness.

A total of 12 different scavenger hunts are included (6 for outside in nature and 6 for the classroom). There is also a page to make your own scavenger hunts.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness means being present in the moment with your thoughts and feelings without making judgments. It is being aware of what is happening but not being overwhelmed.

Why Teach Mindfulness

Research has shown many positive outcomes when you practice mindfulness. People of all ages and abilities can practice. It is a great strategy to teach self-regulation, improve focus, and feel happier overall.
