Is there a more quintessential summer activity than going to the beach?  And what kid doesn’t enjoy going to the shore?  

Actually, my girls have both been a little hesitant about the beach – the ocean is loud!  The waves are big!  They got over that hesitation pretty quickly though, because they get busy building sandcastles, looking for shells, and wading in the waves.  

So this week’s outdoor activity suggestion is to go the beach.  I realize that not everyone can get to the ocean.  Perhaps your family can visit a lake or riverbed.  If all else fails, buy a bag of play sand at the home improvement store, put on your swimsuits and build a sandcastle.  You can play an ocean waves soundtrack from YouTube, like this one, or maybe your favorite Beach Boys tunes.
