Benefits of the Scavenger Hunt for the Beach

This beach scavenger hunt is great as a go-along with your ocean theme. It provides many benefits for your student.

  • Scavenger hunts boost observation skills. As your child looks for objects, he will develop better observation skills.
  • Scavenger hunts require movements; this promotes gross motor development.
  • A scavenger hunt can provide safe sensory input for your student (feel the slimy seaweed, smell the salty air, listen to the waves lapping, etc.)
  • If you work on the scavenger hunt as a team, it will promote cooperation and social skills development.
