Family Fun Activities for the Beach

Family Fun Activities for the Beach

Going on any vacation is always fun but when you spend it with the ones you love make it better. We at Sloan Realty can tell you that finding fun activities that everyone in the family will love is sometimes a little difficult. When you are staying in the Myrtle Beach area, it’s hard to find a place where you all can have a little fun on the sand. Below are a few of the family fun activities that you can enjoy while enjoying a little sun, water and fun in the sun.

Sand Drizzle Sculptures

Family Fun Activities for the Beach

Have you ever made sand drizzle sculptures when you were a kid? You can either go down close to the water or you can get a bucket of water and add dry sand to it. Then you grab a handful of the wet sand and drizzle it. It can be a lot of fun to kids of all ages and that includes the adults too. As a family you can see who can make the best sculpture and the tallest. It doesn’t matter who the winner will be either because you are all winners!

 Play Hot Potato

This is a classic game that is often played at kid’s parties with a potato or small ball. But since you are at the beach on vacation, then you will want to use something else like say a beach ball. It doesn’t have to be a big beach ball, but one that everyone can pass around quickly enough before the music stops. Be sure to bring a beach ball, a small radio and the family and have a friendly game of “beach” potato!

Build a Sandcastle

Family Fun Activities for the Beach

For many children, building a sandcastle on the beach is what they live for on every vacation. But having the whole family get in on the action of building the biggest and best sandcastle is what everyone wants. Grab a few buckets, shovels and some sandcastle molds and make the best sandcastle that you’ve ever made. Have the kids go and find several shells, driftwood and a few other things they find on the beach for decoration. Just have the best time making the sandcastle or sandcastles together as a family.

Make Art in the Sand

One thing that many children love to do, is to play in the sand. So why not make the sand their art canvas and draw their creations on the beach. They can use a small stick or a shells edge to draw their artwork. Decorate it with shells, sea glass, wood, seaweed and more. Let your child’s imagination run wild while they are enjoying their time at the beach. Take a picture of their artwork with the child standing next to it and one without them. Then when you get back home, get a few copies made of the artwork and frame it for them to remember that trip for years to come.

There are so many other fun things that you and your family can enjoy while on vacation, but we wanted to share these with you.
