The beautiful sandy beach is more than just a place to relax. In fact, it's a great playground for kids that has lots of fun ways to play games, learn about the outdoors, and do some really good craft projects.
Spend some time in the tidal pool
Tidal pools are created after low tide and form a pool by the sea. The tide pool is a great place for children to observe and learn about marine life. They are actually a microcosm full of tiny creatures like sea slugs, crabs, and starfish.
To enjoy the beautiful nature and beach, you can book holiday inn suites near beach in Carpinteria.
Teach your children to treat them with respect. When you return home, ask your child to draw or take photos of they find and perhaps gather interesting information from the Internet if they want to learn more.
Have fun with disposable cameras
Giving small children an expensive digital camera, especially when you're at the beach, may not be the best idea. However, you can buy them a cheap disposable camera and let them take whatever pictures they find interesting.
When you get home, have the pictures designed and printed, and create a beach vacation scrapbook for fond memories that last.
Record ocean sound
This works best when you go to the beach when there aren't too many people, for example early in the morning or at the end of the day. High tide is usually the best time when the sound of the ocean is loudest.
