Making an Ocean
Today was the perfect summer day! A little breezy, sunny, and warm! With all the beautiful weather, I made sure we were outside. Since we had been talking about the ocean, I though they might want to make an ocean. Of course they did. So we talked about what we needed. Our list was animals, sand, rocks, and of course….water! We gathered it all up, filled up some buckets, and created some oceans! The girls had fun figuring out how which animals to put in, where to put shells, and maybe even a bit of seaweed! It was really a simple, sensory learning moment that took my only a few seconds to work up! What’s not to love?
The girls had a lot of fun playing with their oceans! But I think that they had more fun playing IN their oceans! 🙂 Happy Summer Schooling!

Great idea. I think I’ll hide some things under the sandy bottom and let them find things under the ocean. Maybe a sunken treasure chest!
