Free Printable Library Scavenger Hunt Activity

Kids will have fun as they explore the library with our latest addition to the scavenger hunt printables. This Library Scavenger Hunt activity makes children aware of the many different types of books there are for their reading pleasure. This activity is appropriate for a group or a single child, the fun is in the individual search.

As a young mother of three I found that my love of books didn’t transfer to all of my children equally. Making a visit to the library an adventure into the many different lands of literature through a scavenger hunt adds an extra layer of involvement for the young and often restless mind. To make it even more fun award this inexpensive Library Tour Patch from our sister site MakingFriends when each of the children complete a suggested reading list or a certain number of books.


Many of the early stories that we consider children’s literature today were written for adults with a moral as the main theme These were later translated into tales to encourage young children to behave or consider the consequences. Source: Wikipedia –  Children’s Literature
