HERE'S SOME ENJOYABLE GAMES...
Squirtball: Split up into two teams and give everyone a large watergun. Draw goal lines in the sand behind each team and put a beach ball in the center. Each team tries to squirt the ball over the other team's goal line, without using hands or feet!
Wave Races: Line up in the ocean with floats; catch a wave - first one to hit the beach wins!
Pair Up Pool Game: Get players to partner up. Players try and swim in pairs with one half doing the arm movements while the other half holds onto their partner and does the leg movement. Best tried in the shallow end.
FOOD SAFETY: Take along only the amount of food that can be eaten to avoid having leftovers. A full cooler will maintain its cold temperature longer than one that's partially filled. If you're eating at the beach, bury the cooler in the sand partway once you arrive, and with blankets and shade it with a umbrella. And remember to open it as little as possible.
BASIC WATER SAFETY: Yeah, yeah, we all know the rules about wearing sunscreen (put it on before you leave the house; reapply frequently and stick to the shade between 10 am and 2 pm when the sun's rays are strongest). ENJOY!
