My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Scavenger Art puts scavenger hunts and art together. It’s a great book that will give kids something fun to do while teaching them creativity. What a great book to get for bored children during the holidays, summer vacation, or a lockdown.

The book has several sections: My House, My Stuff, Outside, People, Faces & Bodies, Nature, Eating, and Birds, Insects, & Animals. Each section lists instructions for a scavenger hunt and a page to draw 9 pictures of items found. Here’s an example from the My House section:

This is a great book that will keep kids entertained for hours. I’m going to have to get one for my grandkids when they’re a little older!

    Awesome! I hope your grandkids enjoy it when they get a little older – it should solve some of the “but I don’t know what to draw” cries!
