Description:
Let kiddos get their hands a little messy with this ocean inspired activity.  Gather up things from the kitchen and let them free play.  In my experience, anything messy keeps kids interested for a long time.  

Skills: Sensory Play

Supplies:
Whipped cream
Blue sprinkles
Blue food coloring
Blue jello
Blue jelly (optional) 

I bought really cheap blue generic jelly (Blue Zilla) on sale for .99 that I thought would be fun to do something with.  It’s electric blue and looks more like an art supply, than food.  It worked great for this activity adding one more element to our Ocean waves.  

The jello was in powder form.  With the sprinkles, it added some grainy texture like sand.  Eventually it would dissolve and I would just sprinkle some more on.

Extra Pinch:
To make this activity more educational, before we started I showed Ms. Tiger a video of waves because we are not lucky enough to live some place where we can see them personally.  She was amazed by the video.  Hopefully we can get her to a real beach soon 🙂

Directions:
1.  Place a blob of each supply onto a tray and let kiddos mix and wave. Add more supplies as needed to keep the colors swirling. 

The whipped cream made our activity look foamy like
the caps on ocean waves.
She loved eating her activity…maybe I should call it an Ocean snack 🙂
I hope you and your Little enjoy this activity 🙂 
Thanks for visiting, Love-Katie & the Kiddos
