Over at 3 Boys and a Dog, we have spent all Summer creating content for an Ocean Animals Unit Study. As we are teaching our kids all about the ocean, we find quickly that the littlest ones do best with some hands on fun. So, I have compiled a list of preschool ocean crafts and activities for those littlies to really grasp the ocean animal learning! The following crafts and activities are great for prewriting skills and fine motor skills. Plus, they are in a fun ocean theme. What kids don’t like the ocean and all the animals in it?
