Sea Life / Beach Combers

During the Sea Life and Beach Combers programs, children do activities like hunting for small shells in the sand, making a shell collection and shell crafts, using fishing poles with magnets to catch cardboard sea life, and touching and talking about preserved shells, sea stars, corals, and other sea life found on ocean beaches. Activities vary depending on the ages of the children.

 

 

Activities

Activities took place in the area adjacent to Great Outdoors.  Children could:

  • Go beach combing for shells and such– keep up to 10 small shells (best for ages 4 and up, and 3-year-olds who don’t put shells in mouth)
       

  • Dive into an imaginary ocean to observe and capture, and then release plastic sea life (ages 2 years and up)
      

  • Use fishing poles and magnets to catch cardboard sea life, then color and cut out paper sea life for the “ocean”  (best for ages 4 and up)
