This is a great idea for the kids when you are in the car travelling to the beach, as well as doubling up with a few tweaks as a beach scavenger hunt. We love our iSpy games on KiddyCharts, and we thought it would be rude not to make one for the summer as well. So voila: here is our free iSpy beach activity for you. We hope you like it. Scroll down for more ways you can use it for even more fun.
This is a collaborative post.
How to use your iSpy summer printable
There are always the usual ways to use the iSpy printable, but we have come up with some other ideas so you get the most value from our fabulous, and fun printable:
- Scroll down to print out the sheets (click on the button below) on the way to the beach to keep the kids busy looking for the items they might see on the beach,
- Take the sheets to the beach, and tick on everything you see there as a beach scavenger hunt; there are a few ideas for you on these sheets,
- Take the opportunity to get some personalised playing cards for free (with 40 designs) from AuraPrint via email@example.com. You can both use these for playing a memory game / matching pairs in the car, and then use them at the beach / holiday to hide for a scavenger quick hunt, or to even play with! Scavenger hunts are just fun, but they are a great benefit to kids too!
Tell me what they printable looks like
As usual, we have given you two options for printing in the download, depending on whether you want to use more ink within the printer that you have. We realise that sometimes people prefer to print minimally where they can:
The first two sheets are the more colourful worksheets for the iSpy beach printable. We have included a few different items to find including:
- Beach ball: 4
- Starfish: 10
- Sandcastle: 3
- Ice cream: 7
- Life buoy / Life ring: 1,
- Boat: 3, and
- Crab: 5.
We hope you agree that all these are rather lovely designs, and the kids will love them. Here are the slightly less print heavy versions for you too:
