Walking Scavenger Hunt
Walking is a great way to start out with exercise. To mix up your walks day to day I like to use randomization, so that’s where the dice come in. The idea of the scavenger hunt is to make a list of things to find while you are on your walk. Instead of something that will always be there, like a park bench, pick a variable that will be different everyday, like “person in a hat”. Once you’ve made a list of things to search for, assign them each to a number 1 to 6, then roll 2 dice. One will be the variables that you are looking for and the other will be how many of that variable you are looking for (ex. You roll a person with a hat on one dice and 3 on the other dice, you will set out to find 3 people with hats). For starters roll the dice one or two times to get an idea of how long it will take, then up the number of rolls from there to find the length that works for you!
1 = Person walking a dog 2 = Squirrel 3 = Minivan in motion 4 = Person riding a bike 5 = Pedestrian with red shirt 6 = Parks worker
Deck of Cards Variation:
The same thing can be done with a deck of cards, but assign the variables to a suit. Then, the number on the card will be how many of that variable you are looking for. Face cards continue up from ten: Jack=11, Queen=12, and King=13. Shuffle the deck, draw 5 cards, then start searching!
