A few easy steps will give you hours of entertainment! First I boiled a package of spaghetti for 10 minutes with green food coloring.
Rinse it off and you have “seaweed!”
I took our plastic pool outside and added all of our ocean-themed bath toys and some sand toys as well. Then I added in the “seaweed” and a handful of salt to make the water smell and taste more like ocean water. It doesn’t hurt that it also discouraged my youngest from drinking the water.
I let the kids fill up the pool and play!
They played for a few hours in the morning, came in during the hottest part of the day, and returned to the pool in the early evening for more fun.
We talked about the things they experienced with their 5 senses while they played.
