During this winter season, it can be helpful to take some time to step out of our usual routines and explore the familiar or unfamiliar world around us. We’re encouraging folks to take a mindful walk through your neighborhood, around your home, or any space accessible to you, and look for some specific scavenger hunt items. This can be an individual activity, or something you do with friends or family. You might just notice something you’ve never seen before, or practice gratitude for things you see every day! Feel free to find items at your own pace. You could find everything in one day, or spread it out over a week! Take photos of the items you find, or bring the item itself, and we’ll meet together to share our items, photos, experiences, and thoughts on this form of exploration.
How to participate:
- Download the Scavenger Hunt checklist here: https://forge-wi.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Winter-Scavenger-Hunt.png
- Find items that correspond to the list in your home/neighborhood.
- Take a photo of what you find when you check an item off your list!
- Join us on Zoom December 21st, 2021 to share photos and discuss the scavenger hunt experience.
(You may want to upload your photos to google drive or another photo storage site on a computer for ease of screen sharing, if you choose to share what you find).
