Children's Beach Wedding Games

Spending this drizzly afternoon preparing a children's beach treasure hunt for an upcoming wedding - vintage scroll maps, messages in bottles, sailors riddles... fun stuff! Picture The Amazing Race, but played out in a condensed time frame and designed for little ones. Our brides father is currently picking out an authentic treasure chest in Panama.

Out of their estimated 90 guests, our bride and her groom have invited 13 children to travel south with them to attend their beach wedding in Costa Rica. While the adults will be playing in the sand all evening, we want to make sure these kids have a memorable night as well. Our favorite part, so far, is making a vintage map with banana paper and burnt edges. We have also incorporated driftwood and vintage bottles into the game because these items will be used as wedding decor throughout. We would love to hear your comments and ideas!
