Beach Small World

Small world play is great for toddlers and preschoolers to act out little scenarios that they are in complete control over. Most small worlds, including this one, also have sensory elements to them and can often be done in sensory bin form.

Our beach was set on just the sand. For the sand/base material I used yellow cornmeal. Poured that in there until it covered the bottom of the bin nicely, and then some. I added in seashells, a striped baby wash cloth as their towel, some Little People who looked like they belonged at the beach, and a fish shaped sand mold.
