Beach Activities for Kids and Mom's Library

Welcome back to another week of Mom's Library.  Don't you wish you were sitting on a beach, sipping something cold while explore Mom's Library this week? Great! I have that same wish. This week, I'm bringing the beach and the ocean to you. Each week I feature activities on Mom's Library from the previous week's Mom's library. This week, the library is hitting the beach. I'm sharing preschool and ocean activities for kids that were shared on Mom's library last week. There are beach sensory activities, hands on science inquires about pirates, and books and book activities for the beach. These activities would work great with a preschool beach unit.

Activities featured on Mom's library

I live in the Midwest, which means we don't get to visit a beach very often. Most of our trips to the beach have to be through books. I've rounded up some of our favorite beach picture books. I'm so thankful that the Moms who linked up to Mom's library last week, shared so many beach activities we can use with our preschool beach unit.

Sensory tubs seem to be a popular beach-themed destination for kids! We had several amazing sensory tubs linked to Mom's library that will help kids experience the ocean.

Coral Reef Sensory Bin from Fantastic Fun and Learning
Island/Luau Water Bin from Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails
Beach Sensory Play and Small World from Fantastic Fun and Learning
I love this Jello Ocean Sensory Play from House of Burke 

Would a trip to the beach be complete without a pirate? or at least a bit of treasure? Check out these exploding pirate treasure chests from Fun a Day

This week's giveaway is the First Grade Reading the Easy Way Curriculum. Last month, I featured the preschool Reading the Easy Way Curriculum at Ready-Set-Read.
