This is part two of Jakob and I’s ocean learning activities. This one was way more of a mess and a lot of fun to do. Again, it was very easy to put together. The hardest part was waiting for the Jell-O to set.
What you will need:
- 3 boxes of blue raspberry Jell-O
- Sand toys (bucket, shovels, rakes and sifter)
- Fishing net and toy fish
- Squids and sharks
- Sponge sea creatures
- Tupperware container
Before you start, put the Jell-O in the Tupperware container and add 1/2 of water and mix it all together breaking apart the Jell-O so it’s easier to manipulate.
Then you just let your child go wild and have fun.
He caught fish and explored them through the net.
He sifted Jell-O and observed that the water drained first and the Jell-O only came out a bit.
He put his catch of the day in his bucket to take home for dinner.
Finally he admired his successful fishing day.
Throughout his play, he made observations and tested his own theories.
This was such a fun activity to do with him, I highly recommend it and because it is Jell-O any child from Infant to Preschool can enjoy this activity.
