Scoop Dig Scoop Dig -- Fun at the Beach

Scoop scoop. Dig dig. That's what I do with the sand when I go to the beach to look for sand crabs. I go to where the waves crash into the sand then I scoop up wet sand into my hand and wait to see if it tickles. If it does, there's probably sand crabs.

I was at the beach again today with my friends and tried something different. I went closer to the ocean and dug a hole in the sand, then when the ocean waves moved in, I'd dig my hands under the sand and pulled out the sand. I'd slowly move the sand away to see if there's any sand crabs -- and there were lots!

Scoop, dig, scoop, dig -- that's the fun I had today at the beach looking for sand crabs with my friends.

Have you ever caught or seen sand crabs before?

Did they scare you or tickle you?
