Winter Wonders Weekend Scavenger Hunts
February 20, 21 & 27, 28
Saturdays & Sundays
10 AM to 1 PM
Join us for a weekend escape in Blithewold’s majestic winter landscape!
Each week try one of our four themed scavenger hunts! Take home a Grab & Go activity, worksheet pages, and a suggested children’s reading list for winter. (One Grab & Go kit for every pre-registered child)
Complete your scavenger hunt and you’ll be entered into a raffle to win our Music at Sunset Picnic Package! (4 tickets to one of our Music at Sunset concerts, private porch seating, plus a boxed picnic)
Flexible Ticketing Available: We know how crazy life is these days. To help you make things a little less crazy we’ve created flexible ticketing! How it works: Pick your weekend, purchase your tickets, then wait until the last minute to decide which weekend day you’d like to arrive. Pick Saturday or Sunday, put on your boots (it can be snowy and a bit muddy) zip up your coat, and drive to Blithewold for a few hours of outdoor fresh air fun!
