Staying Sane while Social Distancing: Rainbow Scavenger Hunt

I saw this idea in a mom group I’m in on Facebook (shoutout to my pretty good moms!) and I absolutely love it so I wanted to spread it as far and wide as I can. Post the idea in your neighborhood groups and on NextDoor and start some local scavenger hunts! Here’s the gist of it:

Vi esta idea en un grupo de mamas al que pertenezco en Facebook (un saludo a mis buenas mamas!) y me encanto asi que quiero compartila con la mayor cantidad de gente posible. Posteen la idea en sus grupos del vecindario y en NextDoor y empiezen busquedas del tesoro! Se hace asi:

Start a neighborhood-wide rainbow hunt! ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ

All you have to do is put a rainbow in your window! Color it, paint it, cut it out, print it from the printer, whatever. Then when we are outside on our sanity walks, we can see how many rainbows we can find!

Todo lo que tienen que hacer el poner un arcoiris en la ventana! Coloreen, pinten, corten de una revista, impriman, etc. Luego, cuando esten afuera caminando podemos ver cuantos arcoiris vemos!

This activity has plenty of benefits without the human contact: Get creative, make something fun, get fresh air, spread some colorful cheer in your neighborhood. Get your kids involved and encourage them to find rainbows! Take photos of the rainbows with your phone and share them on your social media – tag with #rainbowscavengerhunt (in stories too!).

Esta actividad tiene muchos beneficios sin contacto fisico: Ser creativos, hacer algo entretenido, disfrutar del aire libre, darle color al vecindario. incluyan a los ninos y motivenlos a buscar los arcoriris! Tomen fotos de los arcoriris con su telefono y compartanlos en las redes sociales con el hashtag #rainbowscavengerhunt

I hope this turns into a fun activity for you all! We made a rainbow with Penny’s watercolor paints on some thick watercolor paper – I might just frame it after all this is over for a beautiful reminder of a tough time. She insisted we use black paint too, so we made black stars all around the rainbow! Let me know if you do this too – I’d love to see other people’s rainbow scavenger hunt stories!

Espero que esto se convierta en una actividad entretenida para todos! Hicimos un arcoiris con Penny usando acuarela y papel grueso para acuarela. – creo que voy a enmarcarlo cuando todo esto termine como recuerdo de un momento dificil. Ella insistio en usar pintura negra tambien, asi que pintamos estrellas negras alrededor del arcoiris! Diganme si ustedes hacen esto tambien – me encataria ver fotos de sus arcoiris y busquedas del tesoro!

Like it? Pin it! Thank you!

  1. Love this! My hubs and son have been doing daily walks, a little further each day. A ๐ŸŒˆ is the perfect message to send – God always keeps His promises!

  2. Andrea,
    With your interaction with online moms and neighborhood groups, this should be easy to set up, and the kids would love it.

    Love the way this crisis is bringing out the creative instincts in so many.
