If you live next to a beach or within driving distance, consider yourself extremely lucky, especially now that summer has arrived. While the hinterland of the United States must find other ways to cool off and enjoy the beauty of the summer months, coastal residents can instead head down to the beach and have fun in the water. The beach and the ocean, in general, provide so many outlets for fun for the entire family and offer an excellent spot for swimming, walking together, surfing, snorkeling, and so much more. Overall, the beach is a wonderful place to be once summer arrives.
Of course, while the traditional activities mentioned above may be a great way to spend a day at the beach, there are so many other ways that you can enjoy a day in the sun. Are you looking for a few extra ideas you can test out this year when you drive to the beach, or even fly there for a vacation? Consider these new and unusual beach games and activities for the beach.
Bananagrams is one of the most fun games you can play with the entire family. Bananagrams is extremely educational, fun, and an activity that can hold the attention of both children and adults alike.
What exactly is Bananagrams? Bananagrams is an awesome word game that requires creativity and a strong command of spelling. Each player gets a handful of tiles, all of which have different letters on them. Players must then create a variety of different words using the tiles in their hand, and if words have already been played by others, participants may build upon these with their own letters.
But what makes Jumbo Bananagrams different from the original version, and why is it such an excellent game to bring to the beach? Most importantly, the jumbo version is simply a larger and more interactive version than the original. Instead of miniature tiles, this game comes with massive letters that children can hold in their hands. And best of all, the tiles are water resistant, so nothing will get ruined from the salt water of the ocean. Bring this wonderful game to the beach and get ready for fun for the whole family.
Playing catch is a wonderful way to spend time with the kids during a day at the beach. Throwing a ball or Frisbee back and forth with the little ones will help build their hand-eye coordination and motor skills, and allows you to bond together over this fun beach game.
But if you are looking for a new twist on the traditional game of catch, look no further than the OgoDisk Mezo. This sweet kids’ toy provides an excellent beach activity that everyone will love.
What is the OgoDisk Mezo kids’ toy? This toy comes with two hand trampolines that can bounce nearly any ball over 150 feet. Your children can hold onto the trampoline, and send balls rocketing back and forth to one another. This is a great game to play in the water, or even on the hot sand next to the ocean.
Fling a Ring
