Monthly post from contributor, Kristen of Celebrate Every Day with Me.
Last Friday night, my family went to a minor league baseball game. We usually go to one or two games a year and we have a blast eating hot dogs, birthday cake ice cream, but the time actually sitting in the stands is . . . well, short. Young kids (at least my young kids) don’t last long when they do not understand the game nor find much interest in it.
And since there is still some time left to take the family to a ball game this season (the World Series begins October 23rd), I wanted to share my Baseball Scavenger Hunt with you.
Doing the Scavenger Hunt definitely increased the kids’ level of interest in the game, plus it gave us an opportunity to explain certain things (like what is a fly ball).
Before you head to the next game or even catch a game at home, download a free copy of the Baseball Scavenger Hunt. Print it on card stock and grab a couple crayons. Your kids are sure to find more interest in the game and maybe you’ll even make it to the 7th inning stretch. Play ball!
