Heading to the beach is one of my family’s favourite activities. We always seem to find the most interesting things at the beach. From shells to pretty pebbles to crabs and anemones, it’s an ideal place for a scavenger hunt.
What to Find On a Beach Scavenger Hunt
- A smooth stone
- A white shell (then try this shell art picture when you get home)
- A speckled stone
- A sandworm pile
- A blue shell
- Something green
- A yellow shell (these shell crafts are great for all the shells you’ve collected)
- A boat
- Something metal
- A buoy
- A crab shell
- A seagull
- Something pretty
- A piece of beach glass
And don’t forget to be an environmentally-friendly beach-goer too. If you come across any rubbish that others have left behind, pick it up and bin it so that the beach stays as fun and family-friendly as possible.
