The summer is just around the corner, and many parents are beginning to plan their vacations.
With so many wonderful destinations, deciding where to go for a fun family vacation can be challenging.
If you’re looking for an affordable destination that will keep everyone entertained with many activities, we recommend visiting your local beach!
We want to show you ten creative beach crafts ideas toddlers will love!
10 Beach Craft Ideas For Toddlers
1. Sand-y Penguins
Tired of the same old sand castle? Why not mix it up and create a funny-looking Sand-y Penguin instead? After all, penguins are much cooler than castles.
All you’ll need is a little polystyrene to form the penguin’s head, body, and tail. Then, cover it with sand and let your kids go wild with the finishing touches.
2. Sand Angels
Parents, you may want to sit down for this one… What if we told you that making a Sand Angel is possible?
For those who don’t know, a Sand Angel is when someone lies flat on their back in the sand and slowly pushes their arms and legs straight into the air.
When your little ones see how beautiful it looks, they’ll be dying to try it!
3. Amazon River Turtle
The Amazon River Turtle is one of our favorite beach crafts for kids.
Not only is the turtle adorable (who doesn’t think turtles are adorable?), but it also teaches kids about the importance of protecting endangered species.
Save this picture to your computer, print it in black and white, and let your children color their turtle.
4. Seahorse Sand Art
If you’re a parent who’s tired of seeing dozens of plain old sand castles at the beach, then this is the perfect craft for you!
With the help of some colored sand, this Seahorse Sand Art will be fun to make and look amazing in your children’s bedrooms.
5. Fortune Teller Fish
Beach fortune-telling is one of our favorite beach crafts for kids because it allows them to embrace their creative side while also learning to think outside the box.
If you’d like to make this fun sea creature, you’ll need a piece of paper, some crayons or markers, and construction paper.
6. Treasure Fish
This awesome sea creature will keep your children busy for hours because they want to find its hidden treasure!
And since this craft is made from an old plastic bottle, it’s easy to pack away and bring out for your children when they’re ready to play again.
7. Fish Sand Art
We saved the best for last! This is by far our favorite beach craft because it’s not only fun to make, but it’ll also give your home a breathtaking ocean-like atmosphere.
To make this beautiful art, you’ll need an empty plastic bottle, blue paint, white paper, and glue.
Just cut out the fish and glue it to the bottle. Then, your children can paint it blue. When they’re done, put sand on top and enjoy!
8. Sandy Glasses
All kids will love this craft because it allows them to express their creativity while teaching them how to be responsible.
Simply fill a pair of disposable cups with sand, let your children roll them gently on the table to form a ball shape, and stick an old pair of glasses in the middle.
Then, just put a small hole at the top using a sharp pin, and you’re all done!
9. The Sand-y Man
This is another one of our favorite beach crafts because it doesn’t require any extra materials, and all you have to do is let your children run wild with it. It’s a great way to show them how sand can be fun!
10. The Sand Castle
Who doesn’t love a good sand castle? You’ll need some sand (of course), construction paper, glue, and scissors. If you’d like to get a little fancy with it, you can also use glitter glue and paint.
