As far as beach games go, there may not be a better beach activity than digging in the sand. Get a kid a bucket and shovel and they can entertain themselves on the beach for the rest of the day.
Digging a Channel to the Ocean
For mom’s and dad’s who are really trying to get inventive with the little ones, try digging a channel to the ocean with the kids. It not only gives them something to do but it also gets their creative minds. Here’s a way to get started:
- Start by showing and helping them dig a channel in the sand from your beach blanket down to the ocean
- Get a bucket and fill it with water
- Pour the water into the dug out channel and let the water flow back to the ocean
- Get a couple more buckets and the next thing you know your child has some other kids join them and they’ve got a playmate for the afternoon
Your child is set for the afternoon and you’ve got some free time on your hands to just sit and watch!
The beach is great fun for the family. Your kids will grow up loving the beach too if you give them a little incentive to get their creative little minds working on beach adventure that will keep them occupied for the day.
