If you know me in real life, you probably already know that I love the beach. LOVE it. It’s one of my two happy places (the other one is Disney). I always try to make the most of summers here in New England and spend as much time as possible at the beach. I live right off of Cape Cod, but I’m normally found down at First Beach in Newport. Frankly I don’t get the appeal of the cape and don’t go over the bridge all that often during the summer because it’s too crowded. I get a season parking pass for First Beach year after year and you can usually find me down there several times a week between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
My family got in our first beach day of the year over Memorial Day weekend and we seriously could not have been happier.
Sadly, the boys don’t love the beach as much as their mom does, so often times they get bored after a few hours.
But this year I thought of a way to cure their boredom. I made this awesome Beach Scavenger Hunt to bring with us and the boys love it. A few of the things are not so easy to find at our particular beach (starfish and lighthouses), but that just makes it even more challenging and forces them to think outside of the box a little bit.
Check it out:
My kids had a blast doing this scavenger hunt while we were at the beach and they are already asking for me to make sure I have a copy for them to try it again this weekend when we go back. I think your kids will love it, too.
You can download your copy right here.
So tell me, do you love the beach?
