There’s no better way to spend your time than by relaxing at the beach with your family and friends. Some people enjoy cooling off in the ocean, while others prefer to lay in the sand all day and soak up the warm rays. And then, there are people like me. I have a short attention span, and I can’t do either for a long period of time. I’m a competitive person and I simply can’t sit still, so I like to spend my time playing beach games!
One of my family’s favorite games to play is sand darts. You simply draw a dart board in the sand and then throw pebbles or shells in the place of darts. I also enjoy flag football and beach volleyball, while my younger kids are content to simply build sand castles.
For the young and the young-at-heart, there is an entertaining game called sharks and minnows which can be played on the sand or in the water. This is my daughter’s game of choice. One person is designated as the shark, with the other players are the minnows. The shark has to tag the minnows as they run or swim around the shark. As the minnows are tagged, they become members of the shark's team and now help the shark tag the rest of the minnows. The last person tagged is crowned the fastest minnow. Playing it in the water makes it much more challenging!
For smaller children, have fun sorting shells and starting a collection. Make things more challenging by having them sort by color and shape. Or have a treasure hunt... the beach is perfect for finding buried treasure. Any container can be used for the "treasure chest", and simply bury coins, play jewelry or any other treasure of your choosing in a location that will be easy to remember. Then give clues as to where to find it!
Whether you want to lounge in a chair, play in the sand, or splash in the waves, there is always something to do at the beach! Have fun making memories with your friends and family!
