Today I bring you a fun free printable! A bookshelf scavenger hunt checklist that you can use for your kids or for yourself, as you wish!
Hiya kids (of all ages!),
How are you all doing today? Hope you are enjoying your time at home with your family. Are you saying you are looking for something else to do? You need an escape? Well, then books are the answer.
It is Children’s Book Week starting today! And as part of the celebrations, here is a fun activity for you – a scavenger hunt that is all about the books on your bookshelf, in your home, or if you choose to use that, in your e-library. You can customize it however you want or use it as it, and play the game over this week, and continue it later as well.
You will discover books you did not realize you had, or reread books you had forgotten you loved, and simply expand your reading horizons! You can play it along with your friends (share this with them so they can play at their home, and you in yours) and compare at the end of the day/week/any time period. Or you can play it with anyone else you want to.
You can further customize it by adding options that are not related to the book but to reading itself. For example, read in the dining area or in your backyard/patio, read in a different format than you usually do (for example, if you read a physical book mostly, then read/listen to an audiobook or read an e-book), read with someone else (at home or elsewhere with the help of technology), and so on. Other fun challenges can be added on as well based on your interests.
So have a look at the checklists you can use below. They are available by age groups, and one for any/all readers. Download and print them out or write them down, use them as inspiration for making your own lists, share them with others and play together! The possibilities are endless, which means the reading options are endless too.
Have fun playing, and of course reading! And don’t forget to share the results with me:)
