Are you ready for some summer adventures? We’ve come up with a sweet scavenger hunt for you and your family — perfect for the little ones, too!
This is a really fun and easy way to get outside and explore while maintaining a safe social distance. Plus, you’ll get to brush up on some of your photography skills as well!
If you want even more of a challenge, play against friends or family members virtually in another location! Start with everyone on a video call in their respective homes, say “GO!” and see who can complete all of these tasks the fastest.
There are 10 tasks that you and your family need to complete. Don’t forget to document each task with a photo! You can take it selfie-style or have another member of your family/team take it for you. We have some exciting ideas on what to do with the photos when your scavenger hunt is complete, so keep reading!

Personalise a photo book for your summer scavenger hunt
Now that you’ve captured so the summer spirit in so many special moments, why not take these photos off your camera roll and into the real world? One cool way to commemorate your start-of-summer scavenger hunt is to create a photo book! It’s easy to arrange the photos from the day in chronological order to remember every silly, sweet moment. Don’t forget to include the outtakes too!
You can use the app to create a simple and straightforward layout for your book. Or you can visit the site on your desktop and pick from one of our more elaborate photo book layouts, including summer designs, bright and colourful designs, and more. Don’t forget that we have a wide variety of sizes, layouts, covers, and book types to choose from.
Turn these fun memories into awesome art
Looking to make something a little bit quicker? Why not create a large size collage print? This is a great way to include all of the photos from your scavenger hunt in one project! Plus, you can pick from a range of different size options to fit your space. Personalise your piece even more by adding summer-inspired embellishments!
If you’re already a fan of our canvas prints, give our collage canvas a try. This is another quick and easy way to include many photos from one day — we know it can be hard to choose a favourite! Pick the perfect size and layout, add embellishments, and you have a beautiful piece of art that commemorates an unforgettable start to your summer.
