Scavenger Art: Creative Challenges for Curious Kids by Lexi Reese & illustrated by Molly O’Donoghue

Scavenger hunts are fun.

Drawing is fun.

Put them together for ★ SCAVENGER ART ★

This unique art-based activity book includes 52 scavenger hunts designed to

✓ encourage curious minds
✓ spark creativity
✓ practise mindfulness
✓ develop drawing skills

Perfect for ages 6 to 12.

What do you get when you combine scavenger hunts with pages of drawing inspiration? Lots and lots of fun!

Scavenger Art encourages children to look closely at the world around them. Each page provides a new topic with an interesting prompt, artist tips and space for nine creative drawings. 

With categories such as “My House”, “My Stuff”, “Outside”, “Nature” and “Eating”, there is something for everyone. Children can enjoy this book at home or while out and about. It would be fun in the car, on a walk or in the classroom.

As children take the time to stop and look around at all of the amazing details of our world, they will develop observation skills, increase their vocabulary and strengthen fine motor skills. The pages are incredibly appealing and provide a safe way for children to express themselves and the freedom to explore their creativity. Both mindfulness and gratitude will grow, allowing children to feel more connected to their world and all that they have.

Scavenger Art will provide inspiration for parents and teachers. Suitable for childminders and early years settings, right through to Year 6 and beyond. How wonderful to be able to see the world from a child’s perspective and appreciate the everyday things around us.

I’m looking forward to sharing this book with my own children over the Christmas holidays. They’ll love using it in the house, on walks through our village and on a drive to their grandparents’ house. Scavenger Art will be fantastic for keeping them busy and happy without screens and developing so many skills along the way.

Thank you to Lexi Rees for this fun book!

  1. Thanks so much! I’m so glad you see the breadth of appeal (and the benefits like fine motor skills – the box size was very intentional). I hope your gang have loads of fun.
