Building a sand structure is a great way to bond with your family at the beach. Use these easy tips to create a castle masterpiece instead of a massive failure!
In this article I’ll share four simple secrets that will help you achieve sand castle success with your kids.
Why Build a Sand Castle?
There’s no better beach project than to build a sand castle as a family. It’s practically a summer rite of passage. On the list of things you must do when you head to the beach: splash around in the water, look for seashells and build a sand castle.
Although it may seem like a piece of cake, building a sand castle is deceptively tricky. You can spend hours digging, patting and sculpting and still find that your finished product is not all you hoped it would be. There’s an easy way to fix that!
Looking for something new to do next time you go to the shore?
With nothing more than a shovel, a ball and a bucket of water, your kids will have a blast at the beach all day long.
In this article, I’ll show you how to make three sand structures you may not have seen before; three projects that go far beyond the standard sand-pail castle.
Why Make Sand Structures?
A trip to the beach is the one time that parents actually encourage their kids to jump in the puddles and play in the dirt (otherwise known as sand). And kids LOVE it—digging, building, experimenting with all of the things that sand plus water can do.
Looking for new ways to cool off in a shallow creek or kids’ fountain?
You and your kids can make a splash in water that’s only knee-deep and have a ball doing it.
In this article, I’ll teach you to play four shallow-water games that will keep you cool when you need to stay relatively dry.
Why Play Shallow Water Games?
Just let them jump in, you say? It’s true, there’s nothing like bombing into a pool, diving under the waves at the beach or launching yourself off a rope swing into a lake.
But sometimes you need to keep the kids clean and dry. Other times the best you’ve got is a couple feet of water to splash around in.
