Scavenger Hunt (Front Cover)


Scavenger Art is a fab book containing 52 scavenger hunts to keep creative kids happy throughout the year. As always with Lexi’s workbooks, it is beautifully presented in a way that will appeal to kids of all ages, complete with colourful illustrations by Molly O’Donoghue for added inspiration.

Featuring scavenger hunts such as “Mugs and Jugs,” “Badges and Buttons,” “Seeds and Pips,” and “Creepy Crawlies,” this really is a book for all seasons, with projects for both inside and outside of the house. With so many ideas of things to hunt down and draw (and space to draw them), Scavenger Art will provide hours of entertainment for children, no matter what their interests are.

I just know that my friend’s sons would absolutely love this book, so that’s another Christmas present ticked off my list.

I am a big fan of all of Lexi Rees’ activity books, and Scavenger Art is no exception. It is another one that I will be adding to my list of recommendations for all my friends and their children.
