Beach time is always a great time, even when it’s chilly, and there are plenty of beach activities for cold weather. If the temperatures have dropped, but you’re still wanting to book that oceanfront rental for a family beach trip, don’t worry. Even with colder temps, here are three activity ideas your whole family will enjoy:
Inside Game Tournament
Before leaving for your trip to the beach, pack all of your favorite board games and card games. Then, head to your local discount store and buy some bags of candy and anything else that can be handed out as a prize.
Once you’ve reached your destination, use any downtime to play some games tournament style. If you’ve got a large family, divide into teams. Tally the winners of each game and at the end of the trip crown the winner with the prizes you bought!
Hot Chocolate and Cookie Night
Staying in a beach rental gives you the luxury of a full kitchen. Use it to your advantage! Make some hot chocolate filled with marshmallows and whip cream then throw some cookies in the oven that you can decorate with icing, sprinkles and anything else your hearts desire. Once you’ve got your hot chocolate and warm cookies in hand, head out to the porch with some blankets and do some star-gazing.
Hot Soup Picnic
Once again, take advantage of that full kitchen. Make some of your kids favorite hot soup, then head out to the beach for a picnic. Once you’re done with the soup, add a football or soccer ball to the mix for a fun family sports tournament. The soup and the running around is sure to heat you up in no time!
No matter what time of year it is, the beach is always a great place to create lasting family memories. Check out some of our awesome family-friendly beach rentals and make your dream beach vacation come true!
