We leave in just a few days for the beach! Woohoo!!!
So I have been doing a few things to get the girls ready for our trip and to help them be more comfortable with the ocean.
We have been reading some of the books that we have that deal with the ocean and beach.
We have also been playing with and crafting with the seashells that we have. Sam and I have also been talking about walking the beach to find more shells.
The craft we did was super simple. I made some shapes on paper board, then gave Sam glue, shells and beans. I encouraged her to make her own shapes but she just really wanted to keep glueing on the shapes that I drew.
They liked hearing about the shark's teeth too!
The girls have had some serious hesitations about the ocean in the past. I am hoping that talking about it, getting them excited for playing on the beach and knowing that there are other things we can do there besides just swimming will make them more willing to spend time on the beach. I will keep you posted on how it goes!
Back to packing...
