ocean play scene-1

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)

Sand (optional)

Sea figurines like turtles, sharks, fish, dolphin

Shells, coral

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.
