17 FREE Fun thing for kids to do at the Beach

Updated: Dec 19, 2019

Malaysia is a very pretty country to see, learn and experience nature especially the beaches and the rainforest. No matter at which state you are, there will be beaches you can enjoy.

After spending considerably a lot for a local holiday, (my birthday retreat at Redang) I planned on spending most of our time doing free things at the beach. However, to keep kids attention for only one thing like building a sandcastle is sometimes hard!

So I came out with 17 FREE Fun Things to do at Beach with Kids so that if they bored with one thing, there is another.

But why do we need to do activities at the beach with the kids? Can't we just lazily lay down and get tanned?


  • A kid/baby is learning through their sensory system; touch, hearing, sight, muscle, taste and smell

  • Your kids don't see beach everyday and there are so many new things to learn and enjoy at the beach.

  • You're a mom and if you don't follow what your kids want, they gonna throw their tantrum!
