Quarantine Scavenger Hunts Entertain Huntsville Kids

Parents worldwide are running low on activities to keep the kids entertained while staying inside, so several Huntsville neighborhoods are doing their part to help out. COVID-19 scavenger hunts are popping up around the city to help parents get their kids outside and engaged throughout the quarantine. 

Governors House Apartments residents are putting shapes, cut from colored paper, in their windows for kids to see. It can be anything from a heart to a star, anything that will get their attention. 

“It’s simple, it’s free, it’s fun for the kids, and there’s no direct contact, but it can show the kids that everyone is still connected and cares!” wrote one woman whose daughter lives at the apartments. 

Magnolia Springs community is hosting a similar hunt, with people putting items in their windows for the children to see while they’re out on their walks. 

Governor’s House is located off I-565, while Magnolia Springs is on Bob G. Hughes Blvd. in Harvest. If you can’t make it to either of these locations, start a scavenger hunt in your own neighborhood by putting fun items — teddy bears, shapes, signs or other toys in your window.
