Kai-Lan and her friends are going to the beach today, and they do all sorts of things, like fly kites, play beach tag, and bulid sandcastles. The gang meets up with two crabs who ask them to build them a sandcastle. Everyone works on each part.
Tolee builds the castle's tower too close to a wave and accidentally knocks it down three times, making him extremely mad that he steps on their sandcastle and walks away. It's up to Kai-Lan, Rintoo and Hoho to help him calm down so that they can finish the crabs' sandcastle for everyone to enjoy.
