Ocean Sensory Play

I set this Ocean Sensory Play activity up in my laundry room because we have wood floors and I knew this was going to be a messy (but fun!) activity for my kids. I was interested to see how my 2.5 year old son would react to it. I knew he would want to play, but he isn’t a fan of having his hands wet or messy. Apparently, the chance to splash and play in the water was enough for him to overcome his dislike.

We also had so much fun playing, I completely forgot to take additional pictures before I put it away. I was so bummed! But, it’s still a fun picture and I have linked to everything I used, as well as some other fun ideas I looked at when I was planning this activity.

Setup was simple, I just grabbed a big tub and threw everything I had for the bin in it. Here is what I used:

 

            

The kids splashed and played in their ocean for a few days, and when it was time to clean up, I just scooped everything out onto towels to dry, drained the water, and then let the sand dry on the bottom. After it was dry, I poured it into a jar to reuse again.
