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 resort, Castle in the Sand Hotel, is one block away on the oceanfront and welcomes the youngest guests of The Barefoot Mailman to participate in our free children’s activities program, Father's Day through Labor Day 2015.

Don't forget the camera! The children's activities program is sure to provide many Kodak 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! With her sidekick, Lady J, count on an uproariously good time for kids of all ages, including parents too!

Highlights of the Kid Friendly Hotels Program are:

  • The Mermaid Show.  This popular activity at The Castle, our Ocean City oceanfront hotel, features Lady Sunshine as she amazes all with magic in the unforgettable tale of The Castle Mermaid... a magical story of "Merrilee," the mermaid that lives in the waves right in front of The Castle in the Sand.  She believes all the children at The Castle are "Royal Children," Princes and Princesses. Merrilee hides seashells from around the world for the "Royal Children" to find.  Young Barefoot Mailman guests are sure to enjoy The Mermaid Show as "Lady J" recruits little princes and princesses to assist. Lady J delights all the guests with her puppets, magic and jokes. Children will find themselves rolling in the sand with laughter!
  •  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 seadogs! 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, and the most popular arts and crafts activity is "Silly Hat Making!"
  • 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 vacation in Ocean City Maryland at The Barefoot Mailman, just as much as the adults, and kids will have a fun-filled vacation 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!
