Bury someone in the sand

Duration:Half Day
Activity:For kids - things to do before you're 11¾

St Bees has a long stretch of sandy beach - a brilliant place to bury someone! Or you could head over to Whitehaven too. Don’t forget to stay clear of the cliffs and keep a close eye on those tides though.

Take a bucket and spade with you, or use your hands. But make sure you leave the person's head sticking out of the sand so they can smile for the camera!

A warm sunny day in Summer is the best time to do this - the person being buried will appreciate the dry sand as opposed to when it's sloppy and wet!
