This book has taken the Scavenger Hunt to a whole new level! I love that the simple concept of hunting a list of things, as in a scavenger hunt, is combined with drawing. If you have a child who doesn’t like art class, this book could be the perfect game-changer.
Scavenger Art helps a child to be more intent on noticing their surroundings. With a new generation of children who are too busy staring at screens, it may take a new approach like this to help them to look up for a change.
Scavenger Art is a cute book that sends a child on a scavenger hunt, but this time they are given a specific topic instead of a list of objects. After they read the topic (ex. Toys, Potted Plants), they are given a tic-tac-toe grid. On each section they are to draw something that they see that fits the topic. And, it doesn’t have to only be toys that they see in front of them. It could be a toy that they would invent if they were a toy designer. Or, it could be a toy that they don’t play with anymore. Sound fun? It is.
Each topic in the book comes with a few questions or ideas to get the imagination started and the artistic flare sparked. I would love to give this book to my grandchildren. It would make a terrific gift for any time of year; birthdays or Christmas comes to mind.
