Do your kids like to explore on the beach? Try out these 25 beach learning activities to build background knowledge before you head to the beach!
After scraping pennies together, my beach trips as a college student consisted of soaking in the sun and enjoying the latest book. It was relaxing. it was peaceful.
Four kids later, our beach trips don’t even closely resemble those trips from a different lifetime. It is filled with adventures, swimming, exploring, and more swimming. The curiosity of my kiddos never cease to amaze me, and as we look forward to our beach trip this year…..I plan on doing a little before hand learning.
You know, build up that background knowledge so that my children can make amazing connections and those adventures become learning experiences. Learning experiences that they won’t even realize are happening because they will be doing what most young children do at a beach.
So without further ado, here are 25+ ocean learning activities you can with your child before you head to the beach.
