beach with kids...

So we are going to the beach in June with 2- 13 year olds, 2-10 yr olds, 2- 5yr olds, a 3 yr old and a 1 year old. All of them but the 1 year old have been to the beach before, I just worry we might be getting in over our heads. All of the kids are girls except 1 of the 13 yr olds. How do we make sure they all have fun? How do we keep them all under control? Any suggestions would be great- Thanks!

  • For the most part its the beach and its meant to just be enjoyed as is. For the little ones pack some sand tools (kiddie buckets and shovels) you can get at just about any store. They will have fun just playing with the sand and water all day. For the oldest they can bring what they like...music to listen to, books to read on the beach, whatever. Pack lots of healthy snacks like fruits, veggies, sandwiches and water in a cooler and you will be just fine.
