Back to School Supply Scavenger Hunt – FREE Printable!

If you have even stepped two feet outside of your Happy Home, you know that the stores are overflowing with Back to School Supplies.

Does anyone else get a thrill out of a brand new box of crayons?? :-)

Last year I bought 75 boxes for 40 cents each at Wal-Mart.

I am not even kidding about that.

Here is a fun way to treat your Happy Buddies to their school supplies this year – give them a School Supply Scavenger Hunt!

It’s super easy.

Just purchase the basics – crayons, markers, pencils, notebooks, paper, scissors, glue, and a ruler.

Then use my FREE Printable Scavenger Hunt Cards to hide the supplies around your Happy Home!

Your Happy Buddies will just love racing from one rhyming clue to the next, filling their backpacks with the things that they will need for the new school year.

Here’s a peak at what your FREE Printable School Supply Scavenger Hunt Cards look like…

Want to use this School Supply Scavenger Hunt AND get your Happy Buddies thinking about others??

Simply put a double of each school supply at each of the Scavenger Hunt locations.

Then hand your Happy Buddy another backpack and tell him that he is going on a hunt not only for his own supplies, but for the supplies of a child less fortunate.

Finally, have your Happy Buddy donate the backpack to a local charity or organization that is having a Back to School Supply Drive – our church is donating backpacks and school supplies right now to 4 Kids of South Florida.

I think some Staples locations are hosting School Supply Drives as well.

  1. That is ADORABLE! Such a cute idea. My girls are 11 and 13 and wouldn’t really like me shopping without them. They want to pick out their own crayons and such. But they would have love doing this when they were younger!

    • Cindy! You are right!! I can’t believe I never noticed that! I wish I could change it, but I can’t… I suppose everyone could just put an ‘l’ in there with a black pen once it’s printed! Thanks for pointing us in the right direction!

  3. Love, love, love this idea. Our school buys the supplies for the kids, so I’ll buy some and we’ll donate them. Love it.

    I’m also going to make a variation of the school bus countdown chart. So cute!

  4. Never mind. I just had to download it…I was printing from the page when I clicked on your link, but I had to download first to get it to fit. We are going to do this tonight…kids will be so excited! :) Thanks!
