Create this easy stack and sort ocean activity for your kids in celebration of World Oceans Week!
In honor of World Oceans Day, I curated an engaging ocean-themed stack and sort game for my son, incorporating our pull-along stacking turtle from The Learning Journey. To enhance the activity, I personally illustrated sea animals on recycled cardboard, carefully aligning them with the varying sizes and colors of the stacking rings.
This interactive learning experience not only celebrates our oceans but also provides a creative and educational way for my son to explore sizes, colors, and marine life.
My son thoroughly enjoyed the matching game, pairing the rings with the corresponding cardboard drawings, and skillfully stacking them back onto the turtle according to their sizes. The excitement didn’t end there – he later transformed the activity into a delightful adventure, pulling the turtle with enthusiasm throughout the house. It’s heartwarming to see how a simple learning game can evolve into hours of fun and exploration.
Happy World Oceans Week!
