It all began with these spades that we bought for the kids from IKEA.
What’s up with buying spades if there’s no sand to dig?
So, off we went with the kids, to Castle Beach at East Coast Park. Besides the beaches at Sentosa, this has to be our next favourite. The beach here is filled with soft and clean sand, great for building sandcastles.
An added bonus for sand play here are the beautiful sandcastles and sculptures that are on display, built by the folks of Castle Beach. Once in a while, they even provide free sandcastle building workshops for beach-goers.
Our kids needed no encouragement to start digging and building.
The kids spent a relaxing afternoon building, digging, hauling water, chasing after the waves and running on the sandy beach. Our only complaint has to be the scorching sun and the insanely humid weather.
If you’re looking for a sandy beach that is great for sand play for the kids, check out this area at East Coast Park. Remember to bring sunblock, hats and a change of clothings for the little ones!
