My kids and I spent last week at my family’s beach house on Bainbridge Island, just off Seattle. We had friends from Belgium join us, and our six kids ran around from dawn until way after dusk playing on the beach and swimming in the cold water.
When we woke up one morning to blustery weather, we had to be a bit more creative in planning that day’s activities. We ended up organising a big scavenger hunt, and it was so much fun! We wrote up a list of scavenge-able beach items and then we all went out to hunt for the treasures. (We divided up into teams and each team had a grown-up to help read and decipher the list.) It was a perfect cloudy day beach activity, and was actually quite hilarious to look through the contents of the bags when we got back to the house. It’s amazing how many crazy things you can find on a beach!
