Build an Indoor Sandcastle
One of our favorite things to do at the beach is build sandcastles. We don’t just build castles, we build sea monsters and mermaids too! It’s a fun way to spend the day on the beach enjoying the sunshine and working together creatively.
At home we like to build small sandcastles in our sandbox. Building sandcastles is a great STEM activity all by itself. You can teach your preschoolers about structural integrity, three-dimensional shapes like cylinders and cones, and explore what happens when you use more or less water in the mix.
Then one rainy day, we discovered the indoor sandcastle! Follow these instructions to build your own:
- Use a ruler to trace shapes on sandpaper.
- Then, cut the shapes from the sandpaper. For extra fun, let your preschooler practice scissor skills by cutting the sandpaper scraps into fun shapes to be used in your ultimate castle design.
- Next, have fun talking about the shapes you’ve created and feeling the textured sandpaper. Learning can be a lot of fun!
- Finally, arrange your sandpaper shapes to form your very own unique sandcastle design. For added learning you can ask questions like, “Why did you choose to put the rectangle on top of the circle? Would that work in real life?”
Talking about shapes and design as you build your sandpaper castle will help your preschooler to think critically about shapes and how they are used. It’s also a great tactile way to practice shape recognition with kinesthetic and visual learners. When your castle is finished, you can glue it to a poster and save the memory forever. Don’t want the fun to end? Dismantle your indoor sandcastle and start again!
DIY Summer Themed Puzzle
All out of sandpaper? You can still get in on the critical thinking and early math fun with your preschoolers. These no-prep printable color by number worksheets can be used to create your own summer themed puzzles.
Solving puzzles is a great way to boost your child’s self-esteem with a sense of accomplishment. Plus, puzzles help preschoolers develop critical thinking skills, fine motor skills, and problem solving abilities.
To turn these beach themed color by number worksheets into the perfect summer puzzle, follow these steps:
- Have fun identifying numbers and coloring the shapes to reveal a cute beach themed picture. Images include a sand bucket, beach balls, and surfboards.
- Once the worksheet is complete, help your child cut the image apart to form the “pieces” of the puzzle. You can cut along the solid shape outlines or cut into 6 to 9 squares.
- Finally, enjoy assembling your puzzle pieces together.
We cut our puzzle into lots of crazy pieces and then challenged Daddy to a puzzle race. To have a puzzle race, give each contestant a DIY summer puzzle to complete. See who can finish their beach themed coloring puzzle first!
Counting & Sorting Seashells
These summer color by number worksheets are perfect for practicing number identification with preschool learners. Kids who recognize numbers easily are confident in working with numbers and able to develop a strong foundation for more complex math skills later. Keep scrolling to get your own color by number worksheets to practice number recognition skills with your preschooler.
You can use seashells to practice other math skills in a fun, beach themed way. Seashells are perfect for practicing counting and one to one correspondence skills with preschool learners.
Give your preschooler a handful of seashells and see how many he can count without help. Then, show your child how to count seashells by pointing to each individual shell and saying the corresponding number aloud. You’ve just taught your preschooler the most important basic math concept!

Sandcastle Counting Song
One of my favorite techniques for teaching preschool children is to incorporate music and movement. Moving to music while learning helps create connections between the body and mind.
It’s a great way for kids to get some wiggles out, express their feelings, and have fun while learning. Math songs can also be a really fun way to get children who don’t normally like math excited about learning math skills while having fun.
You can add music to a beach themed Summer math lesson with 5 Little Sandcastles from Singing Hands. “5 little sandcastles sitting on the beach…” begins the song. With each verse, one sandcastle is washed away by the waves. The song counts down until all the sandcastles have been washed away.
Kids can use their fingers to count down as they sing along with the song. It’s a great way to practice counting down from 5 with preschool learners.
