We went to Folly Beach for the water and sand and sun, of course, but while there, we found ways to make it a creative week for the family as well with some ocean-inspired arts and crafts here and there.
Some I had planned to do—I brought plaster of Paris for sandcasting, crayons for melted crayon sea shells, and watercolors for painting.
And some were unplanned but wonderful—a shell mandala on the beach, a 2-D sandcastle complete with ramparts and moat, love notes in the sand, the shapes some of our sand cast mementos took.

If you have a beach trip coming up, maybe you could make this one a little more creative than usual with some of these fun ideas.
If you’ve done your beach trip for the year, pin this post to save for next time.
Some of these ideas can even be done at home—no beach necessary!
