Summertime Beach Activities!

Now that summer is in full swing, it is time for lots of outdoor activities including going to the beach!  For those who are lucky to live near a beach or visit one this summer, there are lots of great beach activities that you and your family can do together.  Best of all, these activities can be done with the whole family and lots of them are free of don't cost a lot of money.

Kids love collecting seashells at the beach, but often when you get home they just end up cluttering up a drawer.  Put them to use by making a seashell mobile!  Simple drill small holes in the shells you have collected, and hand them from a piece of driftwood.

Beach bowling is a fun activity, especially at low tide.  Simply create different size holes in the sand, and have everyone line up the same distance from the holes.  Then have everyone take turns rolling tennis balls into the holes and award points based on the size of the hole the balls roll in to.

Flying kites is a great beach activity because there is often a good breeze by the water.  Kites can be fairly inexpensive and you can even make your own!  Flying kites is also great on beach days when it is too chilly to swim in the water.


Making sand castles is one of the most iconic and fun activities to do at the beach.  All you need to build great sand castles are some buckets, or even household items such as cups and bowls.   Get the whole family involved and create a whole sand castle village!

There are so many fun activities to do at the beach, what are your favorite?
