Summer is the time for beach fun!
Sea and Sand
Hot summer days are just right for playing in the water. Even if you don’t live by a lake or beach, you can let children explore some of the traditional beach activities. For fun, set up your back yard to look like a beach. Just use your sand box, water table and sprinklers to add the ‘sand and sea’! Add beach balls, beach towels, sand chairs and an umbrella and you are set to have a ‘beach’ party.
Activities included in this Unit of Study encourage children to explore colors, textures and construction techniques through:
• Chromatography with coffee filters and water-based markers
• Print-making with fish prints
• Sand castles made with permanent sand and
• Plaster seashell tiles
