Fun Fall Scavenger Hunt and Matching Game [PDF Printable]

If you’re ready to enjoy all the AWESOME things about fall, then you’ll love doing this fall scavenger hunt with your kids!

Now, this isn’t the traditional scavenger hunt – it’s actually in a BINGO format so that it can be enjoyed a couple of different ways.

Fall is a welcome season after a long hot summer, and even I gotta say (as someone who LOVES summer and sort of dreads the long winter) that I am looking forward to all things cozy and fall colored!

Here are a couple of ways to use this Fall Scavenger Hunt Game

  • As a normal scavenger hunt – mark off each item as you do or see them throughout the month!
  • As a matching game – cut out each square from a spare card and have your preschooler place it on the matching picture from a second card (this is great for matching and gluing practice)
  • As a traditional BINGO game – Cut out the pieces from an extra card and use those as the calling cards for everyone else!

Some fun ideas to do with the family during fall

I love having written lists of things I want to do so that each day, I can pick one and try to do it! Otherwise I have all these fun family outings planned in my head and am so bummed as soon as the first snowfall hits and I actually didn’t do anything! Time flies!
