Wareham kids splash into second summer of outdoor exploration in Onset
Kids love relay races, and at the beach the old egg and spoon race can be replaced with a water bucket relay. Give each child a plastic cup, spoon, or large shell and have them run to the water, fill their carrying implement, and race to empty it in a bucket. Kids love the challenge of trying to keep the water from spilling before they get it into their bucket.
Kites can be purchased in toy stores, dollar stores, or made by kids before the beach visit. The limbo dance originated in Trinidad in the s. Bring it to the 21st century with a fun beach version. After each child has succeeded at a certain height of the bar, lower it again and again. If you can play music without disturbing other vacationers, pick a selection of fun beach tunes. Line up empty bottles or bring your own dollar store plastic pins and balls.

Remember to let the smaller kids line up closer to the pins. Depending on the ages of the kids playing, a real volleyball and net can be set up. For the smaller set, a beach ball and a towel are great substitutes. Try to count the number of times you can get the ball back and forth. Divide the kids and adults into two teams. Make sure the middle of the rope is right over a line drawn in the sand.
Hand the ends of the rope to each team and show them how to pull. Be prepared to end up in the water! Kids can work together or compete against each other in this fun game. Give each child a beach ball and squirt gun or spray bottle and have them stand across a line drawn in the sand.
Each child has to squirt their ball with all of their might to get it across another line down the beach. Bring the popular hopping game to the beach!
Fun for Preschoolers
Using a stick or rock, draw a grid on the sand and use rocks or shells for markers. Kids love parachute games. Adults love parachute games. So grab a large beach towel and a beach ball, hold the ends and sides of the towel with the ball in the middle of the towel, and see how high that ball can bounce. Aim for the sky! Have two kids or adults hold the ends of a skipping rope down on the sand. Warning: this game may trigger squeals of fun. A beach is a great wide space to blow and chase bubbles. And if the bubble juice spills on your bathing suit, simply head for the water to wash yourself off.
The dollar store is a great source for multiple shapes and sizes of bubble blowers and bubble juice, or you can make your own bubble blowers and juice at home before you head to the beach. Bocce ball is so simple for all ages to learn and to play. Players then throw their weighted balls and the one who gets their ball closest to the target wins a point. The game continues until a certain number of points are reached.
What could be more Canadian than building a beautiful inukshuk? Have your children gather stones or sea glass of various sizes and let them build their own landmark. The tallest inukshuk ever recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records is over 37 feet tall but odds are good that your children will probably produce an item slightly smaller in size.

Tried all of the above and still looking for more? Okay, you guys are totally winning the beach Olympics! Here are some more ideas that offer a bit of a twist on the typical beach activities and are super fun for kids of all ages. Supply each child with a list can be a written list or a list with pictures and a bucket in which they can collect their treasures. Have your kids hunt for driftwood, shells, rocks, crabs, something round, something blue, a feather, etc. The list can be as long or as short as you feel your child will be able to handle.
Canadian kids definitely have experience in the art of snow angels. Transfer those skills to the sand and make summer angels. Another chance to transfer your winter skills to the beach! A sandman can be decorated with pebbles, shells or rocks for eyes and mouths. No trip to the beach is complete without digging in the sand. But why limit yourself to a castle though castles are always fun, too? Required: shovels, buckets, sticks, and any other items that could be used to make a fun sand creation. Using a stick, hands, shovels, or rocks, have kids draw a picture, a word, or letters in the sand.
Or use treasures collected on the beach to make a drawing. Enjoy your trip to the beach and please send us a postcard to tell us how it went. I love how low can you go and added a twist on it. I call it home sweet home. There are challenges such as comfiest, lowest, and most spacious. I do not recommend digging a very deep hole though because my brother could not get out one time. Thanks tho! We love the wooden spoon game most but now have run out of categories to play with. Where did you come up with your categories and do you have any others to pass along? Thanks for your fun ideas!
I was hoping I could see martial arts summer camp or a basketball camp. I have 2 boys and these two is their favorite sports. But the activities on your list is pretty interesting.
Sand darts is one game that's always a bullseye at the beach. Set up beach skeeball. Just dig the holes and get rolling.
Do a little beach yoga. Take a meditative moment and do yoga to the sound of the waves. Get everyone lined up on their boogie boards near the edge of the water. Then, have your kids stand on the board with their backs facing the water so they won't see the waves coming.
Toss a beach ball around. Sometimes the simplest games can be the most fun.
Pin it for later!
To start a giggle-inducing game of toss, all you'll need is an oversized beach towel and a beach ball! Channel their inner castaway and create a beach tent using found branches and a towel. Then relax and enjoy sandy fun in the shade. Become a beach steward by cleaning up the beach. In between all the sand castles and treasure hunting, take a few minutes to stash the trash!
Using supervision, it's a great way to start or end your day at the beach. Make it a game to see who can pick up the most trash—you'll be helping the beach habitat you love and showing kids responsibility. Win, win! You don't need much to set up this classic game.
