Many of the beach games we have listed here require no special equipment or preparation. Read on to find the perfect beach games for your day at the beach.
Beach Games for Kids
All kids love relay races, and have played the old favorite with the egg and spoon. For this race, all you need is a plastic cup and a beach bucket for each child. Set the buckets on the sand in a row and have the kids run to the water, fill their cup, and run back to empty the cup into the bucket. The first one to fill their bucket wins the race. You can also set this up as a team game or have the kids play in pairs.
Beach Kite Flying
The beach is a perfect place for kite flying – large, flat areas with no trees. Keep a few inexpensive kites in your beach bag and wait for a breeze. You can find kites in toy and discount stores, or help your kids make their own.
Beach Bubble Blowing
That beach breeze also makes a great space to blow bubbles. Make your own bubble blowing liquid before you head for the beach.
