We felt a little like the crab in Clumsy Crab by Ruth Galloway.
Our playdough was mixed with sand so we used different kinds of seashells to make prints.
We practiced walking like crabs- that's hard work too!
Using stryofoam balls and toothpicks, we made some pokey little sea urchins.
Here they are complete with our handprint crabs:
Sea star cookies were fun to make. We sprinkled colored sugar over the top to make them look "crusty". They were almost too pretty to eat. Well...almost!
We visited Belleview Park and went exploring in the water and played in the sand. We had to watch out for the crab's cousin, the crayfish. They're known to hide in the rocks on the side of the stream.
