Get your kids even more excited about their next trip to the beach with this fun Beach Bucket Adventure Kit!
My family just got back from a family trip to Florida that was SO.MUCH.FUN. We drove over 16 hours each way to get there (insert crazy face here) but I was fully prepared with plenty of treats and toys to keep my son excited.
One of the ideas I came up with to give him was this Beach Bucket Adventure Kit, full of fun things to do once we (finally!) got to the shore. I shopped the Target Dollar Aisle for all of this so the whole thing was less than $10.
I’ll show you all that I included so you can recreate this idea for your kids, AND I’ll include the free printables I used so you can grab them too!
Beach Bucket Adventure Kit
YOU WILL NEED…
- a beach bucket
- sand toys – shovel, rake, items to decorate sand castles etc.
- free printable activities (download below)
- crayons or pencils (to use with the printables)
- I laminated my printables to make them more durable and reusable, but if you plan to use them once and toss them, regular paper or cardstock will work just fine!
- I included some fun little wooden props I found at JoAnn’s to decorate our sand castles – wood pennants, sea creatures, peg people etc.
- Fill your bucket with all the fun items listed above.
- Head to the beach and have fun!!!
