Ocean Sensory Project

I’m probably more excited about maggie being on summer break than she is. It’s a little disheartening to know I’m about to have a third grader, but none the less we’re going to make this summer one for the scrapbook! We have a few trips planned and a Disney Vacation we’re in the midst of planning. This blog and a few more aren’t going to be about big trips, but the everyday days. 

Maggie and I searched Pinterest to find some fun projects to do. She decided she wanted to do the Ocean Sensory Project first. I ordered the beads from amazon, bought a 16 quart plastic container and toy ocean animals from a dollar store.

You need:

  • Water beads
  • Gallon pitcher
  • Tablespoon measuring spoon
  • Small water safe toys
  • Plastic container


Maggie gives you directions.

Things didn’t turn out like we’d planned, here’s more information.

These things are so neat! They’re a little deformed right now.

Before we went to bed.

After we got up the next morning. They grew a little bit more.

Time to play!

We all really enjoyed doing the ocean sensory bin! We think you will too! 

To see how we’re spending our lazy summer days check out the links under Summer Days With Maggie. I’m sure you’ll find something fun to do with your little one or just for yourself!

  1. Y’all will. We had so much fun with this one. I’ve played with it as much as she has.
