Chicago Parent’s Instagram Summer Scavenger Hunt

Parents are scrabbling to think of new ways to keep kids entertained this summer. We’ve got you covered with our Instagram Summer Scavenger Hunt. 

Every Monday from July 20-Aug. 31, we’ll share on Instagram a themed list of items for kids to find. Families can go on an adventure to search for all five items. 

As you participate, tag photos of your finds on Instagram with #ShareChicagoParent. We’ll share some of our favorites with our followers.

It’s that simple! Follow us on Instagram @ChicagoParent to keep up with our weekly themes or check back here for periodic updates.

Week Seven: Aug. 31-Sept. 6

For our last week, we’re looking for shapes! Find shapes like a circle, triangle, a heart and more. 

Week Six: Aug. 24-30, 2020

Show off some moves! From dancing to climbing, your family will definitely be moving this week. 

Week Five: Aug. 17-23, 2020

Can you find items that are older than you? Search for an old photo, your oldest toy, a rock and more. 

Week Four: Aug. 10-16, 2020

Find as many opposites you can — like something hot and something color, or something something tall and something short. 

Week Three: Aug. 3-9, 2020

Share an original recipe, a vegetable, something sweet, your favorite snack and something that animals eat. 

Week Two: July 27-Aug. 2, 2020

This week’s theme is “Nature.” Try to find something that flies, something that crawls, something that grows from the ground, something that grows on a tree and a body of water. 

Week One: July 20-26, 2020

Try to find something blue, something red, something yellow, something orange and something purple!
