Today is National Play in the Sand Day! What a sand-tastic holiday to celebrate. This day is dedicated to playing in the sand with family and friends. Grab the kids and head to your nearest beach. Or, if you’re not near a beach, we’ve got you covered. Here are eight activities you and your little ones can do at the beach or in the backyard with a sandbox or activity table:
Dig for buried treasure
Build sand castles
Wiggle your toes in the sand
Pretend you’re on a deserted island riding camels
Bury each other in the sand
Make sand angels (instead of snow angels)
Draw in the sand
Create patterns in the sand with shells and pebbles
We’d love to hear how you plan on spending National Play in the Sand Day. Share your favorite sand activities with us!
