Grab Some Rain Gear and Head to the Beach
Once the rain has passed, grab some rain gear and head to the beach! This can be an awesome opportunity to find shells after a storm, when the sea has tossed and turned to unearth hidden treasure. Look for a flash of black sparkle in the sand just where the water touches – often, you will find that tiny sparkle is actually a hidden shark’s tooth.
