Beach Sand Toys for Digging

Older kids need something bigger than the traditional plastic shovel. The shaft of this beach shovel is made of wood and the shovel part is made of heavy duty plastic.

Most sand digging is done near the surf so it is quite possible it will end up out in the water after a serious wave decides to "grab" it. The good news is that these shovels float.

The best combination for fun times for our grandsons is sand and trucks.

They are content for hours pushing the sand around in the front loader or putting sand in the dump truck.

Kids Beach Bag

Let your kids carry their own beach toys with their very own kids beach bag. 

We love these bright colorful ones from Melissa and Doug. 

The mesh bottom lets the sand out and the size is just right for little ones. Use it for going to the pool as well. Our little ones have used their Crab beach totes for several years and the colors have stayed vibrant thanks to the sturdy heavy duty fabric. 

The bag comes in several colors and styles from the orange Clicker Crab to aqua blue Flex Octopus.

A few must haves are shovels, beach pails, and sand shapes.

Another great sand toy from Melissa and Doug is their beach pail. 

A sturdy handle for carrying water and a spout for pouring water made this pail a favorite.

The heavy duty and colorful shovel didn't break like our other ones and was just the right size for our 2 year old granddaughter to hold.  The fish one is no longer available but their bright orange crab beach pail and shovel is another favorite:

Sand or water gets this toy spinning. Play with it near the water or use it just with sand on the beach.

Pack the sand into the brick mold and then smooth the top off and you are on your way to making a princess castle or a super fort.  Get the sand moist, then tightly pack the sand.

Tip it over and tap on the top of the mold and a nicely shaped brick comes right out.  A great sand toy for kids ages 5 and older.

Sand forms and shapes like this turtle from Melissa & Doug's Sunny Patch Sand-Molding Set kept our kids busy on a sunny day when the water was too cold for swimming.

All of our beach sand toys on this trip were from Melissa and Doug - colorful, sturdy and most of all kept the kids entertained.

Beach Sand Toys for Building Sand Castles

Sand castle building kits provide hours of fun and creativity for kids and adults.

We often get several double red flag days at the beach which means you aren't suppose to even put your toes in the water.  So we are always prepared with beach sand toys and beach games.

Beach Sand Toys for Boys

I love this new toy company called Green Toys.

The toys contain no hormone disrupting phthalates or BPA and is made in the USA from 100 percent recycled plastic milk containers,  This heavy duty sand truck is good for toddler ages - 1-3 years old.   Sturdy enough for the beach but certainly can be played with indoors on a rainy day.
