Heading to Sea World with the kids? I’ve got some extra fun that won’t require much on your part, but will reap tons of fun for your kids.
I’m talking about a SeaWorld Scavenger Hunt!
Many of you followed along as I headed to SeaWorld San Antonio last month as a SeaWorld Wildside Blog Ambassador. While I knew the visit to the park would be nothing but fun for my 4 year old, I thought I would make it even more interactive by creating our very own scavenger hunt.
It couldn’t be more simple.
- Cardstock cut into equal measurements (heavy cardstock worked well and held up all day long)
- Glue Stick
- Hole Punch
- Book Ring to hold everything together
I quickly did some research to find out what we were certain to encounter along the way. I noted animals, attractions, and even Sesame Street characters (yes, SeaWorld San Antonio has Elmo and friends)!!! I also specifically noted what was not available at the park. Not all SeaWorld parks feature the same animals or attractions.
I then visited the SeaWorld Fun Zone to find printables. I found Orca Whales, Penguins, and more. For other printable images, I just googled what I was wanting.
I re-sized the images so they would fit on my small cardstock. I then printed, glued and added a caption along with a box to check when the item is discovered.
TIP: One thing that I should have added……a line for my daughter to practice writing/copying the word.
I put them in order, gave them each a nice hole punch in the corner, and attached them together with a book ring (found in most craft stores).
Then I tucked it away for our trip…………
It was a HUGE hit! As soon as she spotted a roller-coaster or walrus, she’d grab her pen and booklet!
Thank goodness we spotted Bert & Ernie near the end of the day……they were our last items on the list! Whew! 🙂
We’ll be heading back to SeaWorld soon. Yes, I’ll be making another, completely different, Scavenger Hunt! 🙂
