Toddler Tuesday! Beach Party!

Well, the weather outside is frightful...
but that doesn't mean you can't still have fun with your little one!  So, break out the swimsuits and get in the mood for some beach fun!  Here's how... 
To start, prepare ahead of time so you have everything you need and the kids can be involved in the excitement! Next, show them pictures of themselves at the beach, read a book about the beach, or watch a movie about the beach!  Also, find some beach themed music like Bob Marley or the Beach Boys.  Finally, get out any of the props listed below and make sure you use your imagination to really make it seem like you are going the beach! ENJOY!

Time to apply the sunscreen!! 
Building sandcastles was fun!!

Here's some props you can use:
     Blow up pool
     Beach towels
     Beach toys-shovels
     Sand activities

After you gather all your props, and prepare your toddler, begin your trek to the beach by driving to the beach, laying in the beach sunning yourself, and then jumping in the water!  Don't forget to put on some sunscreen (this will give you the beachy smell too!)
This activity will give you and your little one a great break during this long winter days!!

Saving the best for last...
You can't go to the beach without having some ice cream, right!?
