Beach Scavenger Hunt

We have so many great beaches at arms reach and it is one of my family’s favourite places to spend time in the summer months. Since having kids, long gone are the days of laying on the beach blanket reading a good book. Wouldn’t change it for the world though! Our family likes to change things up; from having picnics, sandcastle competitions and shell collecting. One thing that we tried recently on a sunny Sunday was a beach scavenger hunt!First person to see/do all of these wins!
