Watercolor Ocean Animals Painting

Watercolors have to be one of our favorite types of painting to do. We love painting activities and do them often.

For the summer we pulled out some cookies cutter we have had a while and did an ocean themed cookie color watercolor painting. It is super simple, and we love painting this way.

It is a great way to add to an ocean activity.

Ocean has always been a favorite summer theme for us. We are always doing something with it. And this was an activity my girls asked to do. We read the book Commotion in the Ocean. It is a great book about different ocean animals and loads of fun. We all took turns reading each page.

What you need for this activity:

I have found out the ones you used are not available but any ocean cookie cutter will work.

How to Make the Watercolor Ocean Animal Painting

You pick out the ocean animal you want to use. You hold it on the paper. Then you get the watercolor you want to use and brush inside of the cookie cutter. You hold it in place while painting. It is great for fine motor work. Older kids can use smaller cookies cutters and bigger ones are great for younger kids.

After we had several ocean animals painted we put some eyes on them. It was a great fine motor activity that made the animals stick out a little more.

The final step that we took was the paint the background. It was fun to see how we made the ocean scene come alive at the end. Plus everyone has different ideas and it is fun to see how creative kids can be.

Beach Number Color & Trace

I love having different themes for working on numbers. The latest set I’ve made is for a beach theme. This is a fun set and loads of fun.

These are a great way to work on numbers during the summer months. Plus beach of one of our favorite themes during the summer.

Beach Number Color & Trace - three fun themes with genereal beach, shells and sand dollars - 3Dinosaurs.com

This set is full of beach with counting. You have a general beach, shells and sand dollars.

There are two versions of the number color and trace for each set. The first set has a number to color and objects that count up to that number. They have a number and number word to trace. The second set has the numbers that you write in. So why have two options for each theme? Because I know not all kids progress at the same time and having materials that all kids can work on is not always easy to find.

These new printables have been added to the Summer Number Color and Trace Bundle.

All the sets have the same two types. The first time has items to color and number digit and number word to trace. The second type has the same items as the first but has writing for the number digit and number work. This allows these printables to be used from preschool to first grade.

Shell Themed Array Math Fact Books!

We have been working on arrays with math facts and with rows and columns. They are both fun ways to learn with. I have done several sets of task cards with these and I wanted to change it up!

Today I have a shell themed array math fact book for kids to complete.

It is something different than just the normal worksheet and I know that my girls just love to use books! Plus these are a quick and easy review for a lot of kids.

These books can make learning fun. I know we don’t always like worksheets and my girls love books. It is nice to switch up our learning style. We are always doing something different to make sure we can change up how we are learning.

I have two types of books for different learning styles and ages. Each of the books has an array of shells on the page and information for kids to fill out. This is a fun way to work on multiplication and division.
