Another fun activity to do with flashlights is taking your kids on a scavenger hunt at night! First, make a list of a few things you are going to hide around the front or backyard (I recommend the back because you can control how dark you can make it versus the streetlights out front. Its good to select objects that are not too small. Bright colors & shiny things are great objects to use. Next, actually go & hide the objects outside. Depending upon the ages of your kiddos you can adjust how difficult you hide the various objects. Once everything is hidden, go for it! If your kids are younger, you might 1 to stay close to them so they do not trip over anything. I also recommend giving each kiddo their own flashlight so they can feel empowered & its just more fun overall! After everything is found, go back inside & have kids share what they have found. I think this activity is more fun if you do not present it like a contest, but rather a group effort to find everything. ENJOY!
