Beach trip with the kids soon? Keep them entertained by helping them build a sand castle! Not only will building sand castles give you and the kids something fun to do at the beach, it also teaches kids about team work, helps stimulate their imaginations, provides plenty of exercise, teaches them patience, and promotes a feeling of accomplishment.
What you’ll need:
Various sized buckets and pails, cups and bowls.
Tools for carving, such as plastic knives and spoons.
Use plenty of water! Get the kids to start hauling buckets of water and pouring them on the dry sand where you want to build the sand castle. Then begin piling the sand up and packing it as high and wet as possible. Begin carving and shaping, and end up with a beautiful sand castle!
