4-H Virtual Recess: Take a Penny Walk


Get outside and take a “penny walk” to see everything that is springing to life! “Penny walks” help kids explore their surroundings and get physical exercise at the same time.


  • Penny
  • Paper and pen for scavenger hunt list

Activity Steps:

1. Step outside and walk until you reach an intersection in your path.

2. Flip your penny. If it lands on heads, then turn right and continue walking. If it lands on tails, turn left.

3. To make the penny walk more challenging, create a scavenger hunt list with objects you might find outside. Look for these items while you’re on your penny walk!
