    Fine Motor:   Draw the outline of a fish on a piece of paper and have your child decorate it/color it (examplese below).  Complete this activity along side with your child or turn it into a family project to have a school of fish when you are done!  Try to emphasize staying within the boundaries as your child colors by talking about using little lines to color.  Also, please correct their grasp if they try to color using a fisted grasp.

    Social Emotional:   If you have some beach toys or ocean animals laying around your house or garage, use those to play in the fake sand with your child.  If you don't have those, you can always use measuring cups and spoons!  Have fun building a sand castle, pushing the sand together with your hands, or scooping it into beach toys or measuring cups to mold it into a shape!  

     Language:   Watch this video to talk about the names of each some ocean animals:

    Sea Animals - Kids Vocabulary

    As the video continues, they will say each sea animal two times.  See if you can get your child to say the name of the sea animal the second time along with the video.  Feel free to pause the video to talk about the animals (does it have legs?, is it big or small?, does it walk or swim?, what color is it?, etc..)
