4 Kid-Friendly Beach Activities for your Next Vacation

4 Kid-Friendly Beach Activities for your Next Vacation

Are you and your family coming to Myrtle Beach soon for your next vacation? IF the answer is yes, then we must tell you about 4 kid-friendly beach activities for your next vacation. Staying with us at Myrtle Beach Resort will keep you close to the surf and the sand. Let’s take a peek below at what those 4 activities for the beach are.

Boogie Board

4 Kid-Friendly Beach Activities for your Next Vacation

For any family who comes to vacation at the beach, they are always looking for new things to do with the kids. This is a classic thing that your kids can do together or with you, boogie boarding. Head to the store where you can pick up a boogie board or two to help make this activity happen.

Bubble Blowing

Who knew that blowing bubbles on the beach could be more fun than at home? Making your own bubbles or getting a bubble wand from the local dollar store will help keep the kids entertained. Watching the bubbles blow in the wind from the ocean is always fun and never gets old. This is a kid- friendly activity especially for the younger ones who want something to do while they are having a good time.

Beach Ball Potato

4 Kid-Friendly Beach Activities for your Next Vacation

Have you ever played hot potato at home? If you have then this is just like that game only you use a beach ball. Be sure to bring a small radio or your smartphone loaded up with fun kid music. Start the music and pass the beach ball around in a circle and when the music stops, the kid holding the ball is out. This game is great for everyone and can be played on the sand or indoors, whatever works best for your family.

Sand Angels

Just like snow angels that can be made in the snow, your kids can make sand angels instead. This can be a fun activity that all kids will love as it means they can get messy. Have each child lay in the sand and make a jumping jack movement on the sand to make their angels. But we must warn you that your child will have sandy hair and bodies. Good news is that there is always the ocean to rinse all that sand off afterwards. What a great memory to make while on your next family vacation!

While there are many other beach activities for the kids to do, we thought to share these few. If you still haven’t made your next reservation to stay with us at Myrtle Beach Resort, now is the time. We hope that new memories will be made here on the sand and you will enjoy the last moments of summer!

It’s hard to believe that the kids will be back in school soon and why not go on an adventure in the Myrtle Beach area. Staying with us at Myrtle Beach Resort will keep you close to where the fun is at nearby. Let’s take a look at a few of the fun adventures that your family can try on your next vacation below.

Be a Ninja

Adventure is Out There in Myrtle

One of the latest crazes that has hit the United States has to be American Ninja Warriors. In many cities you may find your own obstacle course you can have fun on, but you are in luck. Myrtle Beach has their very own Ninja gym where you and your family can become a ninja too. Choose from 60 minutes to 120 minutes. What a great way to spend the day with the family to be a new Ninja Family!

Let’s Go Tubing

Did you know that you can do something a little different while at the beach? Instead of going to the beach for a day, head over to River Island Adventure. Here you will be able to do a few different things such as tubing down the Waccamaw River as a family, enjoy Taco Tuesday on a float or escape the island. This can become a family tradition with doing this and the prices are very affordable. Be sure to pack plenty of sunscreen to lather up so you can float down the river and enjoy spending time with each other!

Spend Time on the Water

Adventure is Out There in Myrtle

Another great adventure that you and your family can do is do a few tours on the water. Many don’t think of doing something fun like this, but head over to Little River Watersports where your family can choose what adventure tour you’d like to try. From taking a 30-minute Jet Ski tour to taking an Ocean Excursion tour, you won’t hear “I’m bored” out of any of your kids. And be sure to keep a look out for dolphins as they love to stay close and give you a show. Bring sunscreen, hats and be sure to pack your bathing suit as you go on a water adventure together!

There are plenty of other adventures that your family can do while on vacation, but these are the few you’d enjoy.

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

Do you have a spring break vacation planned to Myrtle Beach this year? If the answer is yes, then we understand that spending the week sitting on the beach soaking up the rays is just what you need.  Staying in one of our Two-Bedroom vacation rentals will keep you close to the beach but having the right things in your beach bag will allow you to enjoy your vacation. We have compiled a small list of what to pack in your beach bag for your next vacation to Myrtle Beach below.

Beach Bag Contents

Beach Towels

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

When you are on vacation making sure you have packed everything before you leave home is essential. So be sure to pack a towel for everyone in your family whether you are going to sit in the sun or swim in the ocean. Bringing an extra towel with you is always a good idea especially if you have little ones with you. Having a beach towel with a different design can help each member in your group remember which one theirs is.

Sunscreen

With the hot, southern sun sunscreen is a must for any beach bag. Use a sunscreen that is designed for your beach activities such as waterproof, sport, high SPF, etc.). Dermatologists suggests that you use a sunscreen with at least 30 SPF while you are enjoying the sunshine. And don’t forget to Reapply throughout your day as we don’t want you to ruin your vacation the very first day your here with a sunburn.

Mesh Sand Toys Bag

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

Anytime you go on vacation with kids, you have to bring a ton of sand toys with you. We understand bringing sand back with you into your vacation rental is not necessary and can be quite a hassle. So, if you pack a mesh bag such as a laundry bag or a bag specifically for beach toys can help eliminate the mess. Just throw the sandy toys into the bag, give it a good shake or two and leave the sand behind at the beach.

Hats & Sunglasses

Packing sunglasses and hats are a must anytime you visit Myrtle Beach. The sun is much hotter than it is in the north, so we want to make sure that your eyes and face are protected. Having sunglasses will protect your eyes from the sun bright rays and will offer you some relief when trying to keep an eye on your little ones playing. Whether you have a floppy hot or a baseball cap, you will be happy that you brought these along with you. Don’t forget to pack one for everyone in the family.

Water Resistant Phone Pouch

Between the water, sun and sand, the beach is filled with many things that can damage your phone. Bringing a water-resistant pouch to the beach can be a lifesaver for many. If you come on vacation and realize you don’t have one, a sandwich bag or Ziploc bag will do the same as the phone pouch. They will keep your phone protected from the elements at the beach and you can even use it while it’s in the bag or pouch.

Baby Powder for Sand Removal

Baby powder may not seem like an item you would bring with you to the beach, but it’s a wonderful hack for anyone who is on vacation. Whether you are staying in a vacation rental or you decided to drive your car to the beach access, sand will be all over you when you leave the beach. So, bringing baby powder in your beach bag will magically get the sand off of your body without irritation and leave a nice scent too. This is perfect for everyone in the family and not just the kids.

Reading Material

What to Pack in your Beach Bag

One way that you can improve your tan and your mood is by bringing a book or magazine to the beach. We understand that bringing your children to the beach means less time to read a book, but maybe bring a few of their books too. This way when you are ready to read a little, have them come play in the sand near where you are or have them sit under the umbrella and read a little bit of their own book.

There are many other things that you can pack into your beach bag, but these are the must have items for your next vacation. If you are still searching for the perfect resort to stay at for spring break, then check out our Myrtle Beach vacation rentals. We can’t wait for your family to come and vacation with us!
