Let’s Go to the Beach!

We are in the dog days of summer, and it is HOT here! This is great weather to spend a day at the beach, splashing around in the water, collecting sea shells and making sandcastles. Is it too hot for you outside? Bring the beach inside with this simple sensory table idea.


Here is what you need to create a beach themed sensory table:

Water – I used some blue and silver glitter watercolor to make the water sparkle


Sea Animals – Realistic looking fish and other animals would be ideal, but I couldn’t find any, so I used our sea animal counters.

I also cut some seaweed shapes and starfish out of foam. These foam shapes can stick to the walls of the sensory table to make the whole table more interactive 🙂


The only thing that’s missing is the sand! If you had a sensory table with two separate sections, adding sand would be awesome! What else would you add to create a beach at home?
