Outdoor Alphabet Scavenger Hunt

I was looking for a creative way to enjoy the sunny weather and so I took the kids on an alphabet scavenger hunt. We made a list with all of the letters and then headed out for a walk. Emily brought a basket along to collect any interesting items she found along the way.

We looked for anything outdoors that began with the letters of the alphabet. As we walked we would pause and write down what we found. The kids were really engaged in this activity and it kept them busy for quite a while. We walked a few blocks around the neighborhood and found most of the letters. I couldn't think of any "X" items though. No x-rays or xylophones outside around here.
