I just spent the last week on vacation with my kids. We spent part of the time at the beach and so I thought for this week I would give you some ideas of things you could do with them there.
First off, I have to say that this activity was fun, but short lived. We did this alongside of building sandcastles. I had a kit that I purchased sometime ago from Target (go clearance!) and have held onto it. But you could easily do this with things you have in your sand castle building toys. You will need a small bucket, ball, and damp packing sand.
|Pack in the sand. Even though this little model is cute, she isn't packing the sand quite right. Make sure to put some sand in and then pack it down. Keep doing that until it is full.|
