Nakamanda Resort & Spa

The summer heat is soon approaching, and your family can’t wait to be at the beach and have fun in the sun. Typically, there will be traffic as you travel to the beach and this can easily make your children become restless. Nevertheless, once you arrive, everyone can’t wait to leave the car and go straight to the sand. Beach holidays are always fun, relaxing, and enjoyable, even when you have the kids with you, as long as you travel with a plan prepared.
If you are still planning, here is a list of brilliant activities and games that will have your little ones entertained even after they had splashed themselves to their heart’s content. Keep on reading to find out more.

1. Limbo at the beach

The limbo has been around since the 1800s. By using a jump rope or a boat oar, let the kids go under the bar and see how low they can go. After each child has gone under the bar successfully, keep on lowering the bar until only one child can go under the lowest level. Do this with dance music to liven up the activity.

2. Paint rock and shells

It is always fun to pick up small rocks, stones, and shells along the shoreline. Some may come oddly shaped or just plain interesting. You can encourage your kids, especially the older ones to paint on the rocks and shells and make it their own, just use sharpies or any permanent markers to make it work. You can also have a lookout for shells with holes and then craft a necklace out of them. Your children can keep these personalized items as wonderful memorabilia for that particular day at the beach.

3. Build structures using sand

Building sandcastles are a common activity for kids, but why limit their imaginations? Let their brains’ creative juices flow that will allow them to build forts, sandmen, sand animals, and everything in between. Just remember to take pictures for memories just before the waves wash them away.

4. Encourage them to do a beach clean up

It is never too early to instill a love for nature in your growing children. It is always best to teach them to take action and be responsible for keeping Mother Earth clean and tidy. If you want to encourage them to do this activity, you can make it a game to see who can pick the most trash and then present the winner with a reward. In the end, this activity will help the beach habitat and teach responsibility to your kids at the same time.

5. Have a relay race

Divide the kids into teams of two and have a relay race. Using shovels, have each of the kids race back and forth from the ocean, then filling their sand pail with water as fast as they can. Whichever team fills the bucket first will win the round!
