We live so close to the ocean, so all of the under the sea and ocean activities that I come across seem extra fun to plan for my preschoolers! I have put together the ultimate list of awesome ocean activities for preschool and kindergarten. You can easily add these to your science area, craft time, sensory bin, and fine motor play area.
