Lent Nature Walk

Lent Nature Walk

After hearing about The Easter Walk and considering activities for Lent this year, I decided that we would turn one of our many outdoor adventures into a Lent-themed scavenger hunt!  Please feel free to use the printables here or develop your own; either way, I hope it will be a rewarding experience for you and your kiddos to find the story of Jesus’ sacrifice in nature.

What I used:

  • Printable “clues”
    • Flower–Garden of Gethsemane
    • Coin–Judas’ Betrayal
    • Thorn–Crown of Thorns
    • Two sticks–Cross
      • We brought along some tape to turn the sticks into a cross before adding them to our binder
    • Something sharp–Nails
    • Something black–Darkness
    • Something dead–Jesus Dies
    • Rock–Tomb
    • Something White–Angel
    • Something Alive–Jesus
  • Binder
  • 10 page protectors

(1)  Print out the printable clues here.


(2)  Place the title page on the binder cover or in a page protector, and place each of the 10 “clues” in their own page protector.


(3)  Go out on a hike or walk and search for the suggested items.  Place each in their respective page protector.

Anne, along with her husband and growing family, live in suburban America. Follow us on our adventures both at home and away!

Simply put, we are a family trying our best to defy the odds and make the most of these crazy blessings called marriage, family, and life.
