Build your own sand castle
Children love to build their own sand castle. They can easily spend an afternoon on the beach, building a spectacular sand castle. Use shovels, buckets or large sea shells to mold the castle. Dig a moat around the castle and catch crabs and prawns to put into the moat.
Figures in the sand
In addition to building sand castles, you can also make your own sand figures. Make a skull, a fish or a blue whale - the only limit is your imagination.
Catch crabs, small fish or prawns
You can catch crabs, prawns and small fish at the water's edge. Everything you need is a fishing net and a bucket.
Play with the waves
A fun game where everybody can play. Stand at the water's edge and avoid the waves. As soon as the waves come near you, you jump over it. Whoever gets caught by a wave first loses.
Find rocks, seaweed and sea shells for a rainy day
Find things at the beach.
A fun game that Pippi Longstocking used to play with Annika and Tommy. Try this fun game on the beach and collect things for a rainy day...
Fun with rocks collected on the beach
Try and find stones with holes to use for necklaces, bracelets, tablecloth weights or small figures.
Paint the stones
Gather some stones with a smooth surface and paint different motifs with acrylic paint or markers. Paint a ladybug, the Danish flag or small figures. You can also try to glue them together with other things you have collected at the beach.
Make your own natural tablecloth weight
For this fun activity, you are going to need 4 stones with holes in them, 4 clothes-pegs and a string. Put the string through the hole of the stone and tie it together with the clothes-peg. If you would like a more colourful tablecloth holder, you can always paint the stones and clothes-pegs.
Collect some seaweed from the water's edge and put it in a bowl with water. Shape the softened seaweed and put it onto a piece of coardboard. Cover the picture with tinfoil and put it under pressure until the picture is dry. The seaweed is now stuck to the cardboard and you can decorate the picture with sand using glue.
Every year, thousands of tourists experience this island-idyll at this beach and holiday paradise on the coast. The beaches located between Hou and Dokkedal are only a half-hour drive from Aalborg in the east, right where Limfjorden opens up into Kattegat. The small islands are located from a few metres to 30 metres from the coast.
With each passing year, the small beach islands are multiplying. Unlike the waves from the North Sea, the Kattegat's waves are far more generous - washing sand and clay towards the coast, making it grow. This results in several small islands - the size of the islands vary depending on the wind and tide.
