Are you looking for eco-conscious family fun at the beach? Little Ocean Heroes has got you covered! We know that going to the beach is all about creating memories and having a good time with your loved ones. That's why we put together this list of 9 activities that will keep your family entertained while also being mindful of our planet.
1. Coastal Clues Scavenger Hunt
Create a list of items you might find by the sea, like seashells or driftwood. Get your kids to locate all of them to complete the scavenger hunt and get a reward.
2. Seascape Scrapbook
Let's turn trash into treasure! Collect interesting pieces of garbage on the beach and use them to create unique art pieces.
3. Beach Bowling with collected Bottles
Set up six plastic bottles filled partly with sand in pyramid shape (three on bottom, two in middle, one on top). Take turns rolling a tennis ball to knock them over—just like makeshift bowling!
4. Sand Games Galore
Play hopscotch or tic-tac-toe in the sand using sticks as drawing utensils. You could even elevate these games by incorporating some beach finds like seashells!
5. DIY Aqua-Scope Viewer
Make an aquatic viewer for an undersea adventure. Cut off the bottom of a collected plastic bottle. Cut a square of cling film or plastic wrap slightly larger than the opening of the bottle.Use rubber band to secure the cling film or plastic wrap to the bottle. Put on the goggles and hold the aqua-scope viewer with the open end submerged in the water.
If you're feeling crafty, grab some wood sticks and create your very own sundial! Not only is it eco-friendly, but it's also timeless. Take a long thick wood stick and place it in the center of your sundial spot, making sure it stands straight up and every hour, get your kid to place a pile of rocks at the tip of your stick's shadow.
7. Fly A Kite
With open skies and seaside breezes kites are perfect entertainment during any day spent at beaches around Thailand's coastlines
8.Musical Towels Game
Musical Towels is a fun and entertaining beach game that involves music and towels. Here's how to play: Spread out the towels in a circle on the designated area on the beach. Start the music and have the players walk around the circle of towels. When the music stops, each player must find a towel to stand on. One player will be left without a towel and will be eliminated from the game. Remove one towel from the circle and continue playing until only one player is left standing on a towel. The last player standing is the winner!
9.Beach Reading Breaks
Take a break from the salt and the sand and read a book to your kids.
Teach kids community service importance picking up garbage along shoreline. Get gloves/trash bags so whole family can participate while teaching valuable lessons.
These activities don't require much equipment – most supplies are already found within reach – making it easy for everyone involved to have fun while keeping things low-key yet exciting simultaneously.
