We live in Vancouver and we are lucky to have nine public beaches in the city. Eight by the ocean and one by a freshwater lake. We are actually ten minutes away from one of them and we love spending time there, the beach is the perfect spot to go for a picnic, swim, sunbathe and play with the kids outdoors.

If you enjoy visiting the beach and you are hoping to play some fun games with the kids this summer then check out our list of things to do at the beach with kids below.

Note that some require toys that you may already have at home and some don’t even require any. For some of the ones that required extra things we headed to our local Walmart and picked up a few items, all inexpensive and readily available, we spent less than $25 for all!
