If you’re taking a trip to the ocean with your family, here’s a beach scavenger hunt list that can help keep your kids entertained.
It contains 30 things you might find at the beach – there’s also a free printable copy of the list you can download.
Here’s how to organize it:
- Scavenger hunt list (see below)
Give the players a copy of the list and a pen. Explain that their task is to try to find all 30 of the items.
This isn’t a regular scavenger hunt where they have to collect the items – instead, they can check off each item as they see it.
Here’s the list of 30 beach-themed items. Beneath this is the free printable list with these same items – please feel free to make as many copies as you need for your kids.
- Beach ball
- Something with 4+ colors
- Smooth pebble/rock
- Picnic basket
- Bird footprints
- Something written in the sand
- Ice cream
- Beach towel
- Something that smells
- Swimming goggles
- Bucket and spade
If you want to offer a prize, you could reward them based on how many items they find. For example, you could set it up like this:
- 0-9 items – No prize
- 10-14 items – Ice cream
- 15-19 items – $5 to spend at a beach souvenir store
- 20-24 items – $10 to spend at a beach souvenir store
- 25-29 items – Pick where to go for dinner
