Capital City Scavenger Hunt: Regina, Saskatchewan

Apr 18, 2022

Toot toot! All aboard the scavenger hunt train! This week we're exploring Regina, Saskatchewan. 

And this one's a treat for the senses. 

Because on this list? There's pizza. But not just any pizza: Regina-style pizza

Here's how CBC Saskatchewan describes it: "It is thick and loaded with toppings. The crust is crispy on the outside, chewy and tender on the inside, and a touch sweet. It has a bite similar to a bagel. Homemade pizza sauce is generously applied, meat is stacked high and there is an obscene amount of cheese on top, baked at high heat and browned like the top of a crème brûlée."

It sounds like quite a marvel. Something that needs to be seen — and perhaps tasted? 

But there's more to this hunt than just food alone, although I am now hungry. 

Find a Canada goose, a Roughriders logo and a teepee in your travels (sometimes they're seen outside of the First Nations University of Canada, but the building also features a teepee-like structure made of glass!). And if your eyes are wide open, maybe you'll even meet Reginald the grasshopper.

Not in Regina?

I know not everyone is flying out to places these days, but I don't want that to stop you from having a great time with this scavenger hunt (and the nine more to come!). Here are some thoughts to make Regina come to you: 

  • Print out the printable below and cut out each item. If you don't have a printer, check out your local library.
  • Once you've cut out each item, hide the items around your home, some in trickier places than others. If you have access to some outdoor space (backyard, public park, etc.), choose a nice day and hide them outside. 
  • When your little ones are done collecting the items (either print out a second sheet for them to keep track, or have the printable up on a device), it's a great opportunity to research some of the landmarks on Google Maps. What do the items look like in real life?
  • After that, if any of the items inspire questions from your kids, do a bit of further research with them. Each scavenger hunt is an invitation to honour and celebrate places across Canada!
