Seaside Scavenger Hunt

We are fast approaching the end of term and so to celebrate at Rainbows and Brownies we were having our last meeting on the beach!  This is a great way for the girls to let their hair down as they will have had a busy term at school, and at Rainbows and Brownies.  It’s provides a fantastic opportunity for the Brownies and Rainbows to spend time together and for the Rainbows to meet the Brownies they will eventually move up to join.  It’s a lovely way to end the term before we say goodbye for the summer, and for some girls a final goodbye as they move on to Guides or for new adventures elsewhere.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while then you’ll know that I love a Scavenger Hunt! There really is a hunt for all occasions whether it’s summer and you can get outside for a Nature Scavenger Hunt or it’s winter and you need to do something inside such as a Christmas Scavenger Hunt.

For this Scavenger Hunt, we will be separating the girls into groups of four with a mix of Rainbows and Brownies to help with the reading!  If you’re doing this as a family, there are so many ways you could try this including breaking off into pairs, adults v children or each person doing their own hunt!

I’m not expecting the girls to necessarily find all the items on the list, although they might.  However, I am hoping that lots of the items to find are vague enough to encourage some thinking outside the box!

I have included a bonus challenge to find a sea creature.  I will be having a chat to the girls before they start about being kind if the do find any creatures and making sure they do not disturb them but rather admire from a safe distance.

I have included a free printable of the hunt here so you can have a go with your family and friends. If you have a go at the Seaside Scavenger Hunt, I’d love to hear about it.  If you take any pictures, do feel free to tag me on Instagram and Twitter!

  1. Great idea, I love scavenger hunts too! A great way to encourage imagination and interest, with a dose of competition without sports! I particularly like finding something you think is a treasure, I’m sure you’ll get a really varied response to that one!

  3. This sounds fun! A great end of term summer activity. Unfortunately we’re not anywhere near a beach, but I’d like to try making my own scavenger hunt and adapt it to where we are. Thanks for joining #kcacols, hope you can link up next time!

  7. Oh wow is there anything better than a scavenger hunt – and a free printable? Thank you so much. I did one of these in the house last year for my daughter’s birthday party and the kids went absolutely wild for it. They were having a brilliant time! I would never have thought of doing one down at the beach so this is lovely. A great idea #KCACOLS
