Have fun with ocean-themed summer activities. These activities help kids be creative, play, and have fun!
The ocean-themed activities kicked off our At-Home Summer Camp last week. We had so much fun doing one activity a day. It was simple and fun!

The purpose of the At-Home Summer Camp series is to provide moms with some simple and fun themed activities for summer. Instead of trying to do all of the things every single day, I have found it to be helpful and freeing to do one fun activity a day. Some weeks we may do all five activities and other weeks just one, but having a list of activities on hand has helped us thrive during the summer.
Make sure to check out the At-Home Summer Camp Kit! It includes 12 weeks of themed activities for your kids.

Create: Jelly Fish
Our craft was to make a jellyfish using a lunch bag. The kids had a lot of fun doing this and ended up making puppets using the bags afterward.
Move: Ocean Animals
For our movement activity, we used the Ocean Movement cards in the kit. We took turns drawing a card and following the instruction.
Feel: Ocean Play Dough Creations
This is a great activity to have set up for when you are making dinner. I put playdough on the table with some googly eyes and craft sticks. The kids had fun creating their own play dough sea creatures.
Play: Pretend Beach or Go to the Beach
Since we live near the beach, we went to the beach. However, kids love creating their own beach at home with sand and water! My kids have loved setting up a beach play area like this idea!
Explore: Rescue the Sea Creatures
The kids loved this activity! I put plastic ocean creatures in a plastic bin and covered them with shaving cream. Then we put it in the freezer overnight. The kids had fun rescuing the sea creatures!
In the kit, there are ocean animal pictures that you can print and cover with packing tape or laminate to use if you do not have plastic animals.
Ocean Themed Snack: Jellyfish Quesadilla
Each week there is a themed snack idea!
Family Night: Movie Night
It is fun to have a themed family movie night! Goldfish are the perfect snack with a movie for this week. Check out movies like Finding Nemo or The Little Mermaid.
The Family Devo
Each week has a family devotional that is a simple way to teach kids about God.
Ocean-themed Conversation Cards- These are fun to use around the table!
Ocean- themed Reading Bingo- Have your kids read through sea creature books with their bingo cards.
Verse Place Mat- Each week has a family devotional and a verse. You can print off the verse placemats for your kids to color and use.
Other Fun Ideas
There are so many fun ocean-themed activities that you can do! Another favorite is to create puppets. You can trace your hands to make cute fish puppets.
