After we did the Ocean Themed Sensorial Activity I wanted to do the Sea animals based activity in the similar way ,we have done earlier.Little N enjoyed the activity a lot and I wanted him to have fun while learning about the sea animals.
I took out his diaper cover as the activity was with water, he immediately went and got his crocs thinking we were going to the sea.But this summer leaves us with no option but to stay indoors and enjoy the mini version of sea at home.
- Sea animals set
- water mixed with few drops of food colour
Fill the tub with coloured water and keep all the other materials in the tray for the child to explore.
This is how Nirvaan enjoyed this activity
Dropped all the animals one by one into the water
Poured the sand into the water
Squeezed the animals as the sea animals were squeezes and required lot of water to be squeezed in for floating. Nirvaan enjoyed squeezing the water out of the animals.
While he was done with putting (read drowning) almost every thing inside the water we started with our exploration.
Took the animals out one by one and named them.So while earlier all the sea animals were fish after this activity tortoise was the one he was fascinated with.

To make this activity hassle free
- I have used a mat so that dusting the sand will be easier and I would save time on sweeping the floor.
- Transferred the activity to the washroom and did the cleaning activity along with Nirvaan and we enjoyed giving the sea animals a bath.
- Used a sieve to filter the sand from water.
- Sun dried all and stored for future fun activity
