Summer is finally here!

There is no better way to celebrate with the family than a bit of sun cream, sand, and sea! Beach environments are perfect for inspiring independent and imaginative play for a few hours. But as the day goes on, keeping the kids engaged can be tough! Today, Let’s explore the range that can help you beat beach boredom: keeping the whole family entertained for hours on end!


Let’s Explore: Target Games

Target games are a great way to bring a wave of excitement to your beach day. Did you know they are also great skill builders? Yep, that’s right! Target games help refine fundamental development skills children can use to empower their everyday lives.

Aiming for a target encourages children to practice and improve their accuracy with movement. Kids also gain experience with strategy, overcoming challenges, problem-solving and communication.

So, whether your family are fiercely competitive or all about team spirit, target games are brilliant for boosting your beach experience!

Get sporty with the season and engage energised kids with active games. Great for the promotion of physical and mental health, as well as building confidence and self-esteem, active play isn’t just fun and games.

Active games give children the opportunity to explore and evolve their balance and coordination. On top of all that, they contribute to the development of muscle strength, precision, and agility. By testing their reactions, kids also strengthen their sensory and cognitive ability! So sporty games are a real all-rounder!
