TUG OF WAR
Who doesn't love a good old-fashioned tug of war? This game is perfect for the beach because it only requires a rope. Whether you have four people or twenty, tug of war is fun! Hey, even the family dog can join in on this beach game!
Just like regular Pictionary, except better because it's on the beach! Make your own Pictionary cards tailored to your family or bring the cards from the original game, either way, it's sure to be a blast. Your kids will love drawing in the sand!
It wouldn't be a beach game day without cornhole! You can play it on the beach while you enjoy the ocean views or play it in the yard of your Topsail Island vacation rental. If you've never played cornhole, click here for the official rules.
Ladder toss (or ladderball) is SO MUCH FUN! This game takes a little practice, skill, and luck, but once you get the hang of it, it's sure to be a beach day favorite. Need a ladder toss set? Check out this one.
Kids love hopscotch, and they'll love playing it on the beach as well! With so much open space, encourage them to create a mega hopscotch board!
Relay races are fun, especially on the beautiful beaches of Topsail Island! There are several different ways your family can do water relay races, so have fun mixing it up and getting creative!
Who says mini golf is only for the amusement park? Grab a kid's plastic golf club set, set up a course, and have at it! Dig little holes in the sand to putt into and see who can snag the best score. Don't forget to fill in the holes when you're done!
How low can you go? Limbo was made for the beach! Even though it may have been a few years (or decades!) since you last played limbo, you'll have a blast gettin' down under the limbo stick! There are plenty of easy to set up, portable limbo stick options online. P.S... don't forget the music!
