Since we won’t be able to go to the ocean this year, I decided to bring it to us.
Here are some of the activities on our shelves:
This Sand- Scene Play-doh Center is their absolute favorite.
(Just whip up some plain play-doh, provide a bowl of little shells and stones, give each child one or two drink umbrellas, and wa-lah! Hours of fun!)
Lia has been enjoying this transfer activity. The blue beads are irresistible!
An Ice-Cream Shop
Sea shell, driftwood, and rock discovery tray.
(One of these days we’ll sort, identify, and label them using a sea shell book…)
Our favorite beach books: Beach Day and A Day at the Beach.
(I’m pretty sure this is a lame activity, but I didn’t have much time to find out because, no sooner had I set it on the shelf than we needed it for a trip to the pool.)
