Are you ready to hit the beach in a sweet way? Get your sunscreen, your sand toys and your appetite ready, because we're about to make some beach shovel themed sugar cookies!

First, let's whip up a batch of your favorite sugar cookie dough. Once it's ready, roll it out and use a shovel-shaped cookie cutter to cut out your cookies. Don't worry if you don't have a shovel-shaped cutter - you can always use a knife to shape the cookies into shovels.

Finally, take a bite and enjoy the sweet taste of summer! These beach shovel themed sugar cookies are the perfect treat for a day at the beach or a summer party. So grab your friends and family, and get ready for some fun in the sun - and sand!
