A day trip to the beach is the quintessential summer vacation adventure. Make that trip even more fun by surprising your kids with a fun scavenger hunt. This scavenger hunt will have them finding beach staples like towels and shovels and doing classic beach activities like building sandcastles and searching for seashells.
You can’t reach your summer destination without a bit of travel. Road trips can be torture for little kids, unless you have some fun activities to keep them busy. They can work on spotting road signs, special vehicles, and local wildlife — all from the backseat!
A summer camping trip allows the whole family to spend some quality time in the Great Outdoors. Make sure your children get a taste of the local flora by searching for rocks and flowers (just beware of leaves of three!). Then the whole family can join together for fun camp out activities like bike rides and ghost stories around the campfire.
Just download these scavenger hunt printables to your computer. Then send them to your color printer to print on plain white paper. Can you complete all three summer scavenger hunts this summer?
