You’ll get coloring pages, fun ocean activities, and learning worksheets your preschoolers will love! Keep reading to discover all that’s included and some of my favorite hands-on ocean animal activities to pair with this printable ocean animal bundle.

Ocean Animals Tracing Worksheets

Tracing worksheets are a fantastic way for preschoolers to practice fine motor skills and pre-writing. You can encourage your child to hold the pencil correctly while he traces over the dashed lines on these printable ocean animal activities.

I’ve included a printable activity where preschoolers can trace a variety of lines to connect matching ocean animals. It’s a great way for kids to practice pre-writing and proper pencil grip. Plus, they’ll get to practice matching skills too!

When you add tracing to your preschool ocean animal activities, it helps to build a strong foundation for drawing and writing letters and words too.

To practice writing and drawing at the same time, check out the trace and color page I’ve included in this ocean theme bundle. This ocean theme printable will give your preschoolers a chance to get creative while practicing those important fine motor skills too.

Ocean Drawing

Drawing is another great way to practice fine motor skills with little learners. Plus, drawing encourages kids to make connections, think creatively, and build hand-eye coordination.

I’ve included some fun drawing printables with these ocean animals activities too. You’ll get two grid drawing activities for your preschoolers to do at home or in the classroom this summer. Grid drawing is a great way to break the subject down into small manageable chunks your preschoolers can recreate with ease.

With these ocean animal activities, your preschoolers can draw their very own crab or octopus. Then, extend the learning by reading one of these picture books:

The Crab Alphabet Book* by Jerry Pallotta
A House for Hermit Crab*
by Eric Carle
Inky the Octopus* by Erin Guendelsberger
Octopus Escapes Again* by Laurie Ellen Angus

For older children, you can add a writing activity to these grid coloring pages too. Ask your kids to write an interesting fact about the ocean animal they are drawing or make up a story about it to share.

Ocean Themed Coloring Pages

Sometimes, coloring activities get overlooked when it comes to the classroom or homeschool lesson planning. However, there’s a lot of great skill-building happening when your preschooler or kindergartener colors a page!

I’ve included two ocean animal coloring pages in this bundle, plus an ocean animal color and trace printable. Your kids will love getting creative as they color their very own ocean scenes. Plus, they’ll be building fine motor skills, exploring color, and practicing self-expression too. It’s a win-win!
