Ahh, nothing is so relaxing as a weekend at the beach… until that silence is cruelly and irrevocably shattered by the shrieking, clinging, whining, complaining wails of bored children. Fortunately, I’ve gathered a great little roundup of some great CutRateCrafts items that the kids will love! They’ll have a blast, and you’ll get some nice R&R. Be sure to check out the Beach Crafts on AllFreeKidsCrafts too for more DIY ideas!
Not gonna lie: when I first laid eyes on Ol’ Jaws here, I nearly wet myself giggling. I don’t know what it is about him, whether its the fluffy pom-pom body or the giant googly eyes, but I could not stop laughing for about a half an hour. I bet the kids will think he’s pretty hilarious too, and he looks like he’d make a nice soft companion for the car!
Beach Buddies Shell Craft Kit from Creativity for Kids:
Use real seashells collected from the beach to create amazing works of ocean-themed artwork! The Beach Buddies Shell Craft Kit teaches kids how to convert shells into a menagerie of ocean creatures for fun ocean crafts and decorations. These buddies make great crafts for vacation or school lessons on ocean life! Speaking of which, AllFreeKidsCrafts has some precious shell crafts like these Pretty Painted Seashells.
Disney Princess Little Mermaid Iron-On Patches:
Fans of Disney’s The Little Mermaid will love using these iron-on patches to add some flair to a plain tee or to patch up a hole in a favorite pair of jeans. Crafty kids can even use this fun patch to embellish a backpack, beach bag or travel carry-on to go with a fun beachy vacation! Swim like a mermaid at the pool or the beach and chat with the fish like Ariel does. Make these ocean-themed Disney crafts with kids today for some fun in the sun!
What is the best beach for kids to visit? I’m a big fan of Destin, Florida.
