This week, it’s totally been warm enough to play in the water. Last week on the other hand, not so much. Instead we ended up putting together a quick & easy beach sensory activity. Talk about having a blast, though.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.

Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.

The little guy loves anything and everything sand and water and of course learning about the ocean has meant a nice mix of the two. We have a fun water activity to share next week, but today it’s all about sand.

Quick & Easy Beach Sensory Activity for Little Kids

What you’ll need

  • Activity tub or other small container
  • Rainbow Gemstones
  • Play Sand
  • Small Bowls

Here’s how to do it

  • Pour the sand into the activity tub or other small container.
  • Toss in the rainbow gemstones and small bowls.
  • Encourage your little kids to explore the sand and gemstones.

Like really, it doesn’t get any easier than that. And not surprisingly, the little guy is all about these kinds of activities. The messier, the better… You know, at least in his eyes.

I love having lesson plans that are already created for me, but I definitely still enjoy being creative too. Every now and again, the two collide and we end up with an impromptu activity that goes along with our monthly theme.

This just happened to be one of those days. Lol… It’s the little things in life, right?
