Build a Moat and a Dam

Once you’re kids have built that beautiful drippy castle, they need to protect it from the ocean.  Help dig a trench around the sand castle and build a dam with the sand from the moat.

 

The ocean tide always wins this battle, but the kids enjoy trying to dig and re-dig the moat and build and re-build the dam.

It turns into a beach activity that the kids love.  It also turns into a beach sound you’ll love as the kids laugh and giggle trying to battle the ocean tide to save to their sand castle.  Keep your camera and video-recorder close for this one!
