How to Print Free Mothers Day Scavenger Hunt Ideas Printables?


The pdf file includes 6 pages. Print at home, local library, or store. The pages contain low to moderate levels of color to help draw the attention and delight of younger children.


I highly recommend printing on cardstock and laminating the scavenger hunts and bucket list bingo printables for increased durability and for continued use. Laminating the printables allows your child to mark off completed boxes with a dry-erase marker.

Here are a few examples of the list items:

1. Start Mom’s BIG day off by showering her with sweet cards made by the kids

Here are 3 simple Mother’s Day ideas:

2. Make Mom Her Favorite Snack

I love making memories in the kitchen and homemade treats always make people feel loved and appreciated. Remember to clean up the kitchen. 🙂 Of course, going out for ice cream or taking Mom to her favorite restaurant are both great choices!

3. Sing Mom’s Favorite Song

This could lead into a whole karaoke activity. Can anyone play an instrument? Play for Mom.

4. Make Mom Smile

What makes Mom smile? Jokes, dance moves, silly faces, skits, etc. Get the kids involved and see what they come up with.

5. Take a Picture With Mom

This Mother’s Day Scavenger Hunt item should be a tradition. Save a picture from each year and add it to a photo album. Make a brief note about the day and maybe some of the things the kids choose as Mom’s favorite things. This would be a meaningful way to recall precious memories.

Always supervise your children when playing with printables. Young children could chew on paper (or other craft markers such as marker caps, craft pom-poms etc), which can lead to choking.
