Part of raising a happy, healthy family is spending time together, doing fun things, and increasing feelings of connectedness. Family time is important. Whether it is dinner together, game nights, or outdoor adventures, there are lots of ways to bond with your family. I recently discovered a whole new way to have outdoor family fun– scavenger hunt list ideas from Puzzling Adventures. This post is sponsored by Puzzling Adventures but all opinion expressed are my own.
City Outdoor Adventures
Getting outside and exploring is one of my favorite things to do. I love exploring nature and cities equally. But to be honest, I usually find it harder to explore cities with kids because there are so many more variables, like where to park, areas that are safe, knowing where to go and distances between places. That is why I love Puzzling Adventures, they do all the research for you and finding a place to park and a creating fun, safe route to walk. Plus they make it even more fun by adding a puzzle element and a race element.
I just did the Nashville Puzzling Adventure with my daughter and some friends this weekend and we had so much fun. It was a great way to get to explore our city, learn educational facts, and enjoy time outdoors together. The parents and the kids enjoyed our Puzzling Adventure equally. I am going to bring all my visitors on a Puzzling Adventure in the future because it is such a fun way to see the city sights. I am also looking forward to checking out Puzzling Adventures for new cities that I visit. Puzzling Adventures has locations in USA, Canada, Scotland, and England.
Scavenger Hunt List Ideas From Puzzling Adventures
So how does the Puzzling Adventures work? Puzzling Adventures basically gives you scavenger hunt list ideas for a particular city right on your smartphone. You start with directions to your first location and then you get a question which you have to look around and find the clues for to answer the question. Once you puzzle out the answer, you get directions to your next location and question. Puzzling Adventures are basically city outdoor adventures that are “a cross between a scavenger hunt, an informative self-guided tour, and The Amazing Race®.”
If you love Big City Adventure Games, you will love this real life outdoor adventure where you are competing with other teams. Each adventure consists of a series scavenger hunt list ideas that you are guided to where you are required to answer questions or solve puzzles to receive your next instruction. When you finish the course, you will receive your rank for completing that course with the score and time that you did.
While it is a bit of a race, don’t worry, because it is designed with families in mind. Once you have answered the question, the clock stops and you can have a potty break or a snack or savor the sights before you proceed to the next question and the time starts again. They also provide fun historical facts to go with your course as you go so it is educational and interesting the whole time. And don’t worry parents with toddlers, you can even go home and come back another day without penalty to your score. You can participate as a team, as a couple, or individually.
Puzzling Adventures is a fantastic way to explore a city that is fun for both traveling and local families. It is also educational and gets you and the kids outdoors so it is just a huge win.
