Ocean Activities for Preschoolers

My kids love adding sand for the layered look, but remember the sand will start to embed in the slime so although that is a sensation and fun on it’s own – the pretty blue slime look will not last once you add some fun beach sand to the equation.

Another option to get the layered look is to put the pretty blue slime in the bowl with your sea creatures while leaving the sand and sa shells under the bowl. This gives kids the best of both worlds.
