There’s almost nothing better on a fall day than getting outside as a family and going on a hike. Most of the time, just looking at the sights and exploring the world around you is all you need to have a good time. But why not make it more exciting with some trivia games to enhance the experience for everyone?

Let’s break down a few fun trivia games the whole family can play together to make your next nature walk the best one yet.

Let’s Talk About Science

Science is all around us — in nature, in the food we eat, and even in who we are as humans. Exploring the world around you isn’t just about looking at the view from on a mountain or along a trail. Ask each other some questions about your surroundings, and you’ll see everything in a whole new way.

Another fun trivia game to try out on a long walk is a musical one — Name That Tune! Either bring along a phone with a pre-planned playlist, or try singing songs to each other. Play a few seconds of the beginning of a popular song and give everyone the chance to guess what it is. There’s nothing better than finding a new favorite song, and don’t worry if mom and dad don’t know the new stuff. It’s probably more fun to see them get confused by your favorite songs anyway!
