We love Sensory bins and small world play areas. Sensory bins and small world play areas help your preschooler explore their senses and get all the benefits of play (language development, social skills, fine motor skills, etc.). We’ve collected some great ocean sensory bin and ocean play areas ideas.
Fill tub with shredded blue paper, blue streamers, and green Easter grass to make "an ocean." Mix plastic ocean animals into the ocean materials so that they are hidden under the "waves."
Ocean Play Areas
We love the felt play area from Ness over atwww.oneperfectdayblog.com. To make an ocean play area add more ocean animals and maybe some easter grass for sea weed and shells.
Ocean Water Table and Ocean Sensory Tubs
Fill tub with water and water beads. For the sea grass, cook some spaghetti and let dry. Fill a plastic bag with the spaghetti and add some green food coloring. Add to the water. Add rocks and some sand to the bottom of the tub. Fill with plastic ocean animals.
