Planning a trip to the beach? Make your family’s outing even more fun by adding a few new outdoor games and toys to your arsenal. These great ideas are perfect for a wide range of age groups and can even be enjoyed by adults.

When looking at beach games and toys for your family, it is important to remember:

  • Find games and toys that will grow with your children. There are a ton of different options that are just as fun when they hit the pre-teen or teenage years as when they were little. Investing in quality items now will allow them to become fond memories and family traditions later on.
  • Search for items that can be used outside of a trip to the beach. If it is something that they would have just as much fun with in the backyard or on a trip to a local park, it’s a good addition.
  • Look for choking hazards around small children. Many beach toys and games have age limits for a reason and this usually has to do with small pieces or parts.
