Summer is a time for fun and being careless. We remember how to be children, eat ice-cream, splash in the water, wear something indescribably short. What can be better than lying on the beach under the warm sun and doing nothing? Only lying on 5the beach and doing something funny!
If you have already taken your time being a beach seal pleased with life, whose only activity is to spread protective oil on the skin in the laziest manner, than you are ready for more energetic actions. There are beach games for you and your friends which will make your vacation brighter.
First game can be called “Sandman”. You form two teams and make the cards with the names of different characters. It may be some animals, mythological heroes or unreal personages from movies or cartoons. One member of each team takes one card randomly. The task of team is to dig this poor guy in the sand and try to make him look like this chosen personage from the card. The other team must guess whom they meant to recreate. One tip for safety – leave the head of your sandman on the surface, or it will be difficult for him to enjoy the process. One of the advantages of this game is that you can take awesome photos of your friends representing some weird creatures.
Another way to pass time on the beach with fun is playing a game which I call “Diving Ducks”. The same cards can be used there. Each player picks up a card. His task is to jump in the water from the pier trying to represent a chosen character. As the time for the performance is very short the player may use sounds and cries as well. There should be chosen one person from your company to perform the role of the photographer. The pictures of the distorted faces of your friends will warm you during long winter evenings. One tip for safety again – make sure that the depth of the sea is sufficient before diving.
If you want to keep fit even during your vacation than swimming is your choice. It trains all groups of muscles and presents excellent aerobic activity. But it is boring to swim alone, so, to make this process funnier you can play a simple game of touch-and-run in the water. I recommend to restrict the gaming zone to prevent the best swimmers in your company swim too far from other players.
There should be also mentioned some traditional ways of pastime on the beach – volleyball, water polo and Frisbee. To make the games more interesting and complicated you may add some features to them. For instance, climb on the shoulders of your mate to present one two-men player. Again, there is a recommendation for safety reasons – choose slim persons for the role of the upper part of such double players.
The list of beach games is not full, of course. By using the power of your imagination, your good mood and such essential attributes as water, sand and sun you can add much more to it.
