Kid’s Activities

In addition to clean, comfortable, affordable Ocean City accommodations, and an outdoor swimming pool, The Barefoot Mailman Motel also provides an opportunity for kid’s activities in Ocean City, Maryland. Our sister hotel, The Castle in the Sand, welcomes the youngest guests of The Barefoot Mailman to participate in our free children’s activities program, Father’s Day through August 27, 2023 (June 18 through August 27, 2023).

Don’t forget the camera or your cellphone! The children’s activities program is sure to provide many memorable moments! You’ll meet Sandy Johnson as Lady Sunshine, Sunshine the Clown, and Captain Sunshine! Sandy has performed all over the world, including the White House and the Bahamas! Count on an uproariously good time for kids of all ages, including parents too!

Highlights of the Kid Friendly Hotels Program are:

Pirate Day!
Guests of all ages are welcome to participate. Captain Sunshine and Captain J are the funniest pirates you’ll ever find. This program is a hit with all the little sea dogs! All are welcome to make a pirate hat and then dig through the many costumes before taking the “pirate oath” and joining our silly ragtag pirate crew! After the pirate oath is taken the story of the lost treasure is told and pirates set out in search of the buried treasure!

Silly Hat Making
Families come together to design their own one-of-a-kind hats. Many of the children use them for silly hat day at their schools. There is Fabulous Face and Body Painting, still an all-time favorite. Even the parents get in on the act! There are also arts and crafts including message in a bottle, postcard making, pet shell making, but the most popular arts and crafts activity is Silly Hat Making!

Lady Sunshine
Exciting designs for all ages, pick your face from the board, and when it is called come to the picnic table. All Princesses painted at the same time, all dogs painted at the same time… when we finish the list we start all over again. This is fun for the kids; they sit at the table and are painted together because it is much faster.

Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles!
Join the fun in making giant beautiful bubbles that go up, up, and away! The wind currents may carry your bubble to the beach or to the boardwalk! Wherever it goes, you’ll see people smiling!

Movie Night
Every Tuesday night at the Castle, don’t miss Family Movie Night projected onto Castle North! Starting when the sun goes down, our selection of kid-friendly movies and popcorn is a great way to end a day of fun in the sun! Family movie nights start Tuesday, June 20, 2023 and run through Tuesday, August 29, 2023.

Our fun-filled program is the perfect complement to your Ocean City accommodations, planned with your family in mind and keeping everyone engaged and having a fun time. In an environment designed specifically with families in mind, children of all ages can socialize and play together. With activities young vacationers will love, kids will enjoy their Ocean City Maryland vacation at The Barefoot Mailman just as much as the adults and kids will have a fun-filled experience they’ll never forget. On your next vacation to Ocean City, you’ll be guaranteed to hear “are we there yet?” a few more times!

A parent or caregiver must accompany their children during all sessions.
