Sarasota Beach Scavenger Hunt

Sarasota Beach Scavenger Hunt

Visit Sarasota County published an amazing scavenger hunt to help keep the kids busy and attentive and to really discover the amazing things that are available to see on our beautiful beaches! Give the kids the list and let them see how paying close attention to the little things around their feet in the sand and on the waters will help them fully appreciate Mother Nature’s gifts! Let’s help the kids learn a little bit about our local flora and fauna and keep them off their phones and tablets. You never know, they may just end up a scientist at the MOTE Aquarium! See below:

Nice job Liz!
