Mattapoisett Woman’s Club Makes Gardening Fun with Daffodil Scavenger Hunt
If you’re looking for some fun activities for the kids while they soak up the last few days of vacation, the Mattapoisett Woman’s Club has a scavenger hunt ready that will get your child outside and learn about the environment around them.
The Daffodil Scavenger Hunt is happening through Saturday, April 23, and Mattapoisett Woman’s Club member Bethany Couto was thrilled to see the event come to life.
“I am part of the garden group and we were talking about trying to do an event for kids during their vacation week that would be a fun way to introduce them to flowers and gardening,” said Couto.
The Mattapoisett Woman’s club plants daffodils all over town as part of its beautification project, aimed at keeping Mattapoisett beautiful and lively.
“It’s rewarding in a sense that you are planting something and waiting for it to grow,” said Couto. “You are not only planting for yourself but for other people to enjoy.”
During the scavenger hunt, adventurers will travel to 10 locations on the map in search of the daffodil gardens, where they will find numbers and record those numbers on their maps.
Participants will return the maps to the woman’s club table at Mattapoisett Free Public Library by April 23 for prizes, crafts and other exciting surprises.
Registration is strongly recommended before embarking on the daffodil journey.
Couto believes it’s the perfect way for children to get more familiar with the world around them.
“Kids are learning about climate change more and they are paying attention to it more. I think learning how to grow your own garden and take care of the earth is so important,” she said.
Sign up for Daffodil Scavenger Hunt by Saturday and get familiar with the beauty of Mattapoisett.
