Taino Fridays

Kids look forward to Taino Fridays at the Explorer’s Club at Dreams La Romana Resort & Spa! Every Friday, the Explorer’s Kids learn about the history of the Taino, a group indigenous to the Dominican Republic. With the help of the Explorer’s Club staff, the kids make costumes of traditional Taino garb and parade their fashions. The fun doesn’t stop there! The Explorer’s kids also learn the Areito Dance, go treasure hunting in the jungle and, to top it all off, have a fun-filled picnic.

Next time you’re at Dreams La Romana, check out all the fun activities the Explorer’s Club has planned for your kids! They’ll have a blast!

Towel Art at Dreams Resorts & Spas

At Dreams Resorts & Spas, we love leaving little surprises in the rooms for our guests. Our staff is trained in the art of towel origami, so often times there will be swans, monkeys, elephants and other fun towel animals to greet our guests when they return to their room for the night.

Of course these towel animals are a huge hit with children, so we thought it would be fun to offer an interactive towel art class just for kids. The class is a great way for children to learn how to make a variety of towel creatures, which is sure to impress their family and friends back home.

Take a look at some pictures from recent towel art classes at a few Dreams Resorts & Spas.

The Art of Building a Sand Castle

We’re always looking for ways to have fun at Dreams Resorts & Spas and our sand castle building contests have become a favorite activity for our Explorer’s Club kids.  So we’ve decided to share with you some of our favorite tips and tricks to building a sand castle fit for a king!

Here is a list of the supplies you will need:

  • A shovel
  • Sand castle carving tools
  • Buckets
  • Sunscreen

The most important part of building a sand castle is building the foundation. When choosing a location for your castle, pick a spot that is just the right distance from the water to keep waves at bay. Water plays a key role in the sturdiness of the castle so easy access to it is important. When you’ve finally found your perfect spot, dig a shallow hole in the sand until you hit the water table. Having a moat around the finished castle will help to keep the waves from washing it away.

Now, it’s time to start building! Heavily pack wet sand into a structure of pillars that will form the corners of your castle. Then pack sand into bricks and stack the bricks to form the walls of your castle. Now that your foundation is complete, the fun part begins!

After you’ve packed and stacked your sand, it’s time to get creative! Use your carving tools to give the castle its final smooth shape. This is where artistic skill comes in handy (so enlist the help of Mom and Dad if you need too!) Be sure to add fun details like bricks, steps and shingles. Even try your hand at creating a sand castle prince or princess!

We hope you get the chance to create your own castles out of the beautifully shimmering sands of our beaches at Dreams Resorts & Spas. Until then, give these tricks a try in your local playground’s sand box!
