With summer on it's way, I have been sent a copy of The Beach Book to review. Whilst you could argue that there is nothing in the book that you couldn't find on Pinterest, it collates all these imaginative ideas for things to do on the beach, so the reader has them all to hand.
Of course a lot of these ideas don't need to be limited to the beach. Making a sundial, stone, faces and stone balancing are all ideas which could be transferred into the back garden.
On a recent trip to Devon we had a great time playing on the sand dunes and looking in rock pools. I was a little disappointed that the book didn't include a key to common things that you might find on a British beach.
The book has given me some ideas of things that I would like to do with the boys. One thing I would like to do before I am 40 is to go crabbing. The book seems to say it is pretty simple. There is also a great extension to a sandcastle. Make it into a ball run! My boys would love that.
If you are off to the seaside this summer and worried about how you will keep the children amused then this book is for you. There are loads of ideas, and there is something that should engage any child. The book costs £9.99 and can pre-ordered from Amazon with it's release date being 4th June. If you would like to win a copy, please complete the Rafflecopter below. Good Luck!
