This play scene is easy to set up. You can either fill a container with water (more like this Desert Island Play Scene) or add sand to create more of a beach look as pictured above.
Large rectangle container
Empty ice-cream bucket
Blue food colouring (optional)
Sea figurines like turtles, sharks, fish, dolphin
Milk Bottle Lid Boat (or cut down a plastic cup to use as a boat)
Fill ice-cream container with water and add a few drops of food colouring if desired. Place the smaller container amongst a larger container filled with sand. Arrange shells, add the animals and a boat and the kids will be set for play.

Warning: Children need to be supervised around water and small objects.
