Inspired by Sam at Thrive 360 Living and her fun Penguin Small World Play and Shaunna at Fantastic Fun & Learning with her awesome Dinosaur Sensory Bin, I set out to put our water table to good use and created an Ocean Sensory Table for our Ocean Week.
The materials I used to create this sensory table can be found at most craft stores, and include:
- blue water beads
- decorative sea shells
- small decorative rocks
I also used some large rocks from our yard and the Coral Reef Toob by Safari Ltd. And Caden had to add a vehicle of course, luckily we had a beach patrol truck in our collection! It fit right in on the rocky beach I created!
Caden enjoyed exploring the different materials. He really liked the feel of the water beads and loved to scoop them into the rocks and sea shells. He even began to use the small sea shells to scoop the water beads up and move them around the table.
He also enjoyed making the fish swim around the “ocean” and asked many times what the name of a certain sea creature was. Caden is particularly interested in the sea-horse and octopus.
This is a really fun sensory table and I am really glad that I had to chance to create it! If you enjoyed this please visit Stir the Wonder on Facebook and follow me on Pinterest. This Ocean Theme board might be of particular interest!
