A nature hunt is always fun.
Actually...it would more appropriately be called a Nature Scavenger Hunt.
This would be great to do as part of a green party idea!
Here are some great and easy ideas that you could use to incorporate a little nature into your fun:

Alphabet Nature Hike
Another great idea is to go on an alphabet themed hike. While you trek, look for something starting with a letter a, then something with the letter b, etc.
Nightime Nature Scavenger Hunt
Go for a walk or hike at night for your scavenger hunt. Use reflector tape and flashlights.
Night Hunts might include looking at a star chart or thru a telescope to find constellations and planets.
You can also hear about stars and constellations or create a creature station to see which insects are attracted to a light.
Here is the disclaimer to keep you safe out in the woods (and keep the woods safe from you!)Be careful of snakes, poison ivy, ants and stinging insetsTry to disturb your environment as little as possibleIf you do collect items, make things out of the stuff you've foundOther fun things to do at a nature party are to play Lotto with nature pictures or animals, or to play an animal version of "Who Am I?".
