BEACH SCAVENGER HUNT IDEAS FOR ALL AGES
Your Florida beach scavenger hunt can be used in several different ways depending on the number of kids you have and their ages. Change it up and see which way works best for your family. Here are a few ideas for you.
Use a Pre-Made Hunt
This is the quickest, easiest way to get your scavenger hunt started. Use the pre-made list and let the kids set off on their seek and find, crossing off the items as they find them. Ready, set, hunt!
If you have enough scavenger hunt participants (adults can play, too!), divide into two teams and work together to find the items. Scavenger hunts are a great team-building activity.
Set a Time Limit
You can add an extra level of fun and excitement by setting a time limit for finding the scavenger hunt list of items. Whoever has found the most items within the time limit wins.
For the Youngest Ones
You can pare down this list for the littler ones in your family and only give them a few of the tangible things to find and collect in a bucket. Or you can play along with them and help guide them on their discoveries.
Require Photo Evidence
If you have an adult playing along on each team or kids old enough to be trusted with an electronic device on the beach, you can require photo evidence for each item on the scavenger hunt as proof of completion.
Create Your Own Hunt
With a blank scavenger hunt, you can customize your items to tangible things that can actually be collected and brought back to you. You can also have school-aged kids write out their own hunt as part of the fun.
