Going to the Beach


We’re not really going to the beach but I am doing several beach themed activities with Hailey this week. I had wanted to post this yesterday but for some reason I couldn’t upload any pictures last night. Rich has it all fixed up for me now though, so I’m back in business!

The first beach related activity I did was show Hailey what a beach would be like.

I have just a simple Rubbermaid container that can be filled with sand or water (or any kind of sensory tub activity). It’s a lot cheaper than buying a sand/water table and it works just great. When we’re done I can just put the top on it and put it away. So, here is it with some damp sand and sea shells.

I hid the sea shells in the sand and let Hailey find them. At first I made it very obvious where the sea shells were so that she would understand what we were looking for. Then I actually hid them and she had to dig to find them.

Then we built a sand castle.

I dug out an H in the sand and then had Hailey fill it with sea shells.

When we came inside we sat on a beach towel and read some books. Hailey had an absolute blast.

That was our first day of beach activities. Be sure to come back to see the other beach related activities that we are doing this week.
