 Sensory/Social Emotional:  Ocean Sensory time! 

Cook some spaghetti noodles (feel free to add a few drops of food coloring if you want them to be colored.)  Let them cool then put them into a container of water (your child can help with this part.)  If you have any ocean animals, you can take turns hiding the animals in the seaweed (spaghetti noodles) and finding them!
