Fun Family Activities for the Whole Family
The beach is a place for near infinite fun and here are a few ideas on how you can have a blast next time you visit the beach.
The end of summer is nigh, is there room in your calendar for one more visit to the beach? While your kids might love swimming in the ocean and playing in the waves, they only have so much energy to dispense. There are plenty of land-based fun activities to keep them busy with until sunset. Here are some neat ideas that you and your family can do to have a fun time at the beach.
Fun Beach Ideas
- Build a Sand Castle
This one is one of the oldest tricks in the book. While it may be an old past time, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be fun. Wet sand can stick together pretty well and with a little carefulness, your sand castle can reach quite impressive lengths. Once you’ve finished your castle, find a nice stick or shell to place atop the tallest tower.
- Sand Pictionary
When the tide is out, a sandy beach is the perfect canvas for an exciting game of Pictionary. It’s up to you to draw your thing before the waves come in and erase your masterpiece. Put a nice spin on things by making the theme “Under the Sea” related.
- Beach Art
Get an early start to this game by walking down the shore and collecting all kinds of shells. Design your artwork and “color” it in with the shells you collected!
Just be sure to apply sunscreen if you will be going to the beach! Sunscreen now may save you and your children’s life in the future. The proper health insurance should cover you in case an accident does arise.
