Under the Sea
This week we will be exploring the wonders of the oceans and the fascinating creatures that live there. It will be a wet and wild week.
Small Motor Activities:
Water Sensory Tub- we'll have lots of fun when we fill the tub with water and practice scooping, pouring and squeezing
Large Motor Activities:
Scarf Dancing- we will be using scarves to mimic the ocean waves
Paper Plate Aquarium- a plain white paper plate will be transformed into a peek at an underwater world
Jelly Fish Windsock- this time a paper plate will be used to create a squiggly ocean friend
Handprint Octopus- two hands, traced together will form this creature and just wait to see what we add to his tentacles
Watercolor Fish- what better paint to use on fish!
Jello Sea- this snack will combine blue jello and gummy fish to make an edible ocean
Fishing Game- we'll use those fish we painted to create a fishing game
Sink or Float- the sensory tub will become a science lab as we experiment to figure out which objects sink and which float
