Sandcastle Day

Home / / Sandcastle Day


Who is ready for a trip down memory lane? The first Saturday of August is known worldwide as Sandcastle Day!

We are sure reading this will transport you back to your childhood days of building sandcastles on the beach!

Be honest now, when was the last time you actually built a sandcastle? Either with your child, friends, or even all on your own? This Sandcastle Day it’s time to find a couple of hours to remember just how wonderful building sandcastles at the beach can be!

Depending on what kind of sandcastle you want to build and how much time and work you’re willing to put into, you could even take some tools along with you to make your job easier. A basic bucket and shovel combo can greatly reduce the number of trips you’ll have to make to get all the sand you need in one place, and a simple pair of work gloves will prevent the skin on your hands from becoming irritated. There are also plenty of wood, metal and plastic forms available that will help you shape things to looks as nice as you want them too.

And a sandcastle doesn’t have to be the only thing you enjoy on this day, either–a picnic lunch or a barbecue will likely be just what you need after a couple of hours of intense construction work, and nothing tastes better than a meal eaten out in the fresh air! So what are you waiting for? Pack a lunch, grab a shovel and get down to the beach to enjoy a day of sun, fun and nostalgia.
