A Day at the Beach

Awhile ago I found myself at a wonderful blog by Mari-Ann Counting Coconuts.  I really like her blog name and her creative Montessori teaching methods.  I've found her photos so inspiring particularly her beach theme activity.
Our beach activity.
I am continually challenged with keeping my 5 year old "busy" when he's not in preschool so I thought I would try a similar beach activity for him.  It was an instant hit!  An added blessing was we were able to do it outside on our patio since it was warm enough.   It was so good to be outside without a coat on!!  Whohoo for spring!


He had so much fun playing in the sand.  We used styrofoam (found at the dollar store) to hold the umbrella picks in place.  They ended up looking kind of like islands in our ocean, don't you think?

"All You Need for a Beach"
I also read him some books from the library about the beach and ocean .  Next, I hope to have him identify the shells but in the meantime I may need another bottle of sand since a lot of it spilled out the sides!

This was a great way to pretend like we were at the beach!

Happy Spring!
