Every since I used Lisa’s What Will Pumpkin Be? Halloween scavenger hunt last fall, I knew I wanted to create my own version at some point. Spring seems like a great time for a passive program, so I went with a spring bunnies theme. One of the library assistants at my branch contributed her amazing artistic talents and helped me design the book character costumes for each bunny. A huge shout out to Penny for making these bunnies look absolutely amazing!
So here’s what to do:
1. Download and print the book character bunnies.
2. Paste them onto a piece of construction paper and fold over one half, creating a card kids have to open to see the bunny. This part is optional. You could just put out the bunnies.
3. Hide the bunnies around your library.
4. Make copies of the scavenger hunt sheet and leave for kids to complete. I put out a ballot box for kids to place their completed sheets.
I’m planning on leaving it out for two weeks and then drawing a few winners. Aren’t convinced to try this out yet? Check out the bunnies!
My favourite is Franny K. Stein. I hope your library kids enjoy this scavenger hunt as much as mine have!
