Tot School ~ Ocean Theme
~ Our little lovebug is currently 22 months old~
We were on vacation for the past three weeks and therefore had a very relaxed learning time; nonetheless, learning style happened :)
I made an ocean-themed sensory box for the kids, which included fuzzy pom poms (to represent the water), sea shells, fish and shell table scatter (from Target), and sea critter finger puppets.
The kids loved it :)
On another day, we sorted the table scatter (blue sea shells and orange fish).
and filled pom poms in a baby bottle...
We spent a few days down in San Diego and got to visit Sea World, which was a hug hit with both kids. They loved touching some of the smaller sea animals (sea stars, sea urchins, snails etc.).
we saw Beluga Whales!
and Polar Bears!
We also were very fortunate that my family invited us to spend a week in Maui, Hawaii with them. We rented a house directly by the beach and had the BEST TIME!!
One day, we took a trip on a submarine and saw a lot of sea life :)
Of course, the majority of our time was spent at the beach!
A little tot school activity in Hawaii... (little glass pebbles that were used in candle holders outside)
Our cutie all dressed up, ready to go out to dinner :)
