Seaside Scavenger Hunt

Seaside Scavenger Hunt Logo

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!

  3. This is such a lovely post. I grew up in Birmingham and have fond memories of Brownies and then Guides. We obviously didn’t get any beach fun but we did have woodland scavenger hunts. I love the free printable, thank you. #GlobalBlogging

    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!

  10. What a great scavenger hunt to do. We haven’t done one in ages, so I’m going to take your list along to the beach with us the next time we go. Finding a sea creature is always the hardest! Thanks for sharing this with the #dreamteam x

    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

    Scavenger hunts are so much fun for all age groups. I’ve never tried one at the beach but it makes perfect sense. #MMBC
