Beach treasure hunt


With the sunshine giving us a little taste of the summer, it's the ideal time to head for the beach with the kids. Do you remember rock pooling and filling your pockets with shells on seaside holidays as a child? Competing to find the biggest sea creatures, the flattest pebbles for skimming in the water, and the most poppable seaweed. Hunting for treasures on the beach is a timeless simple pleasure which can be educational too.

We've come up with a great way to give your exploration a little purpose and introduce an element of healthy competition. Download our free beach treasure hunt for the children and they can tot up points as they find each item on the list. Keep an eye out for crabs and shells on your adventures and see if you can tick off some of the more unusual seaside finds such as jellyfish and heart-shaped pebbles.
