Pit Pat Race Track

Budding race car enthusiasts can have fantastic fun building a miniature Silverstone in sand.

Start your race track up high – perhaps winding down from the top of a spiral sandcastle – then dig a high-sided sand channel wide enough for a ping-pong ball to whizz round. Build in slalom obstacles, hills, holes, loop-the-loops and other miniature-golf type hazards. Each person has to pat the ball around the track: the winner is the one who does it quickest or with the fewest pats.
