Top 5 Household Items for Beach Toys
I’ve had this happen multiple times. Your kids are bored with your beach toys. You forgot them. Or worse…they got “lost at sea.”
Instead of paying for more of them, you might have some of these ordinary household items around and collecting dust. Here’s my list of the Top 5 Ordinary Household Items that Make GREAT Beach Toys. As a Florida beach mom, these are must haves!
Great for finding new treasures, collecting shells or straining water and sand!
A pitcher is wonderful! Take a plastic one to hold your new toys, fill with sand, water or both!
3. Cookie Cutters
Make new sand shapes with cookie cutters! Bring your child’s favorite!
4. Bath Toys
Who says bath toys are for home only? Take some old ones to the beach and give them life again!
5. Ice Cream Scoop or Measuring Scoop
Can’t grab sand without a digging tool!
6. BONUS – Scrub Brush
I loved the idea of kids cleaning up the sand. Make new patterns, erase footprints or just smooth out an area for play.
