Chances are, when you visit your beach campground, your kids are going to want to collect seashells, starfish, and other assorted beach creatures. Bring along a plastic jar to hold rocks, seashells, and even some beach sand as part of your beach outdoor gear.
However, the beach is a natural environment, and each of the creatures you encounter depends on another to live and thrive. Explain to the children that bringing home fish, crabs, starfish, and such really can harm the natural balance of the beach and ocean.
So, enjoy the creatures of the beach, but leave them behind on the sand for others to enjoy, too!
