Fun at the Beach: Summer Sorting with Shells

The fun doesn't have to end after a trip to the beach. Keep your summer vacation going with a little bit of fun summer education. While you're at the beach, gather a collection of beach shells or pick up some at a shell shop. Look for shells in varying sizes, shapes, and colors.

Use your shells for sorting after the trip. In fact, if you have a sandbox at home, use it too for a great learning locale. You can let your kids sort shells in in different ways.

Let children sort the shells by color first. Then they can sort the shells by size. They can even sort the shells into similar types and then sort them by size like the picture above. 

This is a simple activity that will keep your kids entertained during the 100 days of summer and learning. Learning should be fun.

Join me next time for a summer beach art lessons for kids of all ages.
