Making a Sandman

A summer version of the winter snowman.

This is a cool activity that will generate a ton of fun for the kids and that will spark creativity. 

For spending a day at the beach, this is a 'must-do' activity.

Some ideas that you can give a try at:  

  • Have a competition on who can make the tallest or largest Sandman in the quickest amount of time. 

  • Make an impersonation of someone you know, it could be mum and dad, you're favourite actor, dress them up with some of your spare clothes.

  • Create a cast of Snowmen to act out different stories. 

  • For those of you who are into competition and who are up for a fun challenge; you could create an army of Sandmen and have a battle with friends and family!

Don't let opponent win by allowing your Sandmen army to get wet!!! ?
