The beach is a great frugal place to spend time. Oftentimes the most expensive part of a beach is getting there, but once you are at a beach, you can have hours or even days of fun just using your imagination so pack your sand toys and let’s go!
An obvious choice is to go swimming.
or to go for a walk along the shore and leave footprints.
I find that little kids attention span and physical ability tends to limit them to more terrestrial activities such as building sand castles.
and building bigger sand castles.
If sand castles aren’t your thing, then maybe getting or burying someone in sand is more appealing.
You can get creative and become a Merman
or a merman at a sushi bar
Or you can drive a sand car around.
or fly your sand airplane.
Just be careful that the land sharks don’t get you!
You may need a friend to help save you.
