Did you find a scallop shell? Did you see a “gingerbread’’ cottage? Did you smell low tide? These are just some of the questions in the new Funhunters Martha’s Vineyard Scavenger Hunt, a laminated, foldout brochure designed to encourage children to explore all the Vineyard has to offer. Gerry Moriarty, a retired educator and island resident, modeled the game after the neighborhood scavenger hunts she loved as a child. “In our electronic age, we don’t pay enough attention to the natural wonders around us,’’ she said. Once children find 59 Vineyard treasures, they are invited to log their accomplishments online and receive a personalized Funhunter certificate. Available at island stores, $10. 413-335-5770, www.funhunterkid.com
