Kids encouraged to build a sandman on the IOW this half-term

If you're looking for short break ideas for the forthcoming half-term holiday, why not pop across to the Isle of Wight so that your kids can take part in the Sandman Snowman event?

On Sunday February 23rd from 10.30am, Small Hope Beach in Shanklin will play host to a sand-sculpting event with a difference, as carrots are dished out to help the participants build their own beach snowmen. 

Of course, there are plenty of pebbles around to make the eyes, clumps of seaweed for the hair and driftwood for the arms, so really the beach is the ideal spot to build a 'snow' figure.

There's been a distinct lack of snow in the south this year, so constructing a jolly snowman out of sand will go some way to alleviating your kids' disappointment.

Whatever time of year you visit, the Isle of Wight's welcoming sandy beaches are ideal for taking a stroll, having some fun and enjoying the fresh air, so why not experience them for yourself this half-term?ADNFCR-3083-ID-801691354-ADNFCR
