Set up towels in the family room and have kids don their swim and scuba gear! Pretend there's a hot sun and you're on the beach!
Bring out the playdough and use seashells to cut, pattern, and create!
Put those bathing suits to good use and take a 'dip' in the bath instead of the pool!
Grab a few simple craft supplies and create some beachy creatures!
Cut construction paper into a crab shape, then add glitter glue or decorate with markers or crayons.
Serve apple juice with mini umbrellas and make your own hula skirts! Have fun - the kids's imaginations will take over and maybe you can fake the beach yourself with a good book under a palm tree (or reading light!)
