Ocean and beach play are a big part of our summer fun. When we aren’t at the beach during the summer we’re usually doing some sort of ocean-related activity. I’ll be sharing more of the activities we’ve tried this summer throughout the month of July. In the meantime I’ve gathered some terrific ocean, beach, and sea life ideas from The PLAY Group for you to enjoy with your child.

I put out a Beach Printable Pack not too long ago in anticipation of doing an ocean unit with my kids. Can’t wait to explore some of the ideas as I plan what we’ll do to learn about the ocean! There’s so many great sensory activities here it will be difficult to do just a few!
I felt the same way…so many great activities to choose from. Hope you enjoy trying them out!
