Summer season is the time to spend weekends at the beach. But sometimes kids get bored, so it is a good idea to plan some activities beforehand. So, here are some beach activities you can do with kids:
1. Build Sand Castles
Playing with sand improves the sense of texture in kids. So, even if your little ones have just started to feel different textures, take them to the beach, and build sandcastles with them. If your kids are old enough to make sandcastles of their own, then let them make as much as they want so that their creativity gets a chance to develop.
2. Collect Seashells
Take some plastic buckets with you at the beach and give them to your kids so that they can collect shells. You can use the shells later on for making some cute crafts as well with your kids.
3. Do a Picnic Party
Bake a batch of cookies or muffins with the help of your kids. Make some sandwiches and pack them in your picnic lunch boxes so that you can enjoy a fun picnic party at the beach.
4. Build Stone Towers
Collect all the flat stones at the beach with your kids and have a competition to see whose tower is the tallest. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
5. Have a BBQ Party
You can also take your portable charcoal grill to the beach and make bbq with kids as kids not only love eating it but making it as well.
6. Fly a Kite
Pick the kite you like the most, and fly it with your kids. Kite flying is thrilling and will surely make your kids happy.
7. Do Some Photography
There are many fun and cute ways to take beach photos with kids. For example, you can make shadow sand faces. Or you can wait for the sunset and take a silhouette photograph.
8. Draw on The Sand
Kids love making drawings. So, let them draw on the sand with their fingers. It’s going to be so much fun to see their artwork.
9. Make Sand Angels
You might have made snow angels with your kids, but you can do that in the sand too.
10. Make a Sundial
While you have fun doing beach activities, you can also teach your kids something interesting. Such as making a sundial with rocks and driftwood.
