You could do hand painting with green paint to cut out & stick together to make seaweed.

Make fish decorated with sequins, glitter etc to stick around your beach.

Make ice lollies to go in the freezer & enjoy on your beach.

Make a huge sandcastle out of boxes/cardboard tubes covered in glue & rolled in sand.

You could ask them to bring in some photos of a recent holiday & make a holiday collage.

On art attack they made a holiday map where they drew all the places that they'd been on holiday, like the beach, hotel, theme park etc then stuck on photos they'd taken or postcards they'd bought.

take a photo of each child so they can make their own passport, plus ask for a photo of them on their favourite holiday or place so they can make a page out of a holiday brochure adding them all together you have a brochure!

get some lining paper and put large sheets out for painting drawing in garden. Then you can put it all together like a mural. Draw on the flagstones with chalks also.

have a tropical day, dress up beach party style and have cocktails (non-alcohol of course). Do topic about safety in sun - slip, slap,slop.

Go all the way and make hawaiin garlands, with scrunchy flower tissue paper they are really fun and take alittle while, then you can have a hula competition or limbo.

Make some caribbean snacks?

Good luck sounds like fun might do some of this myself
