Create an Ocean in a Bottle
Watching the waves move back and forth, splashing and tumbling shells along the beach, can be mesmerizing. The natural sway of the water is soothing and exciting at the same time. Waves are energy in motion. The tides are caused by the pull of the moon's gravity on the earth's water as the earth turns.
Every person who has walked along the beach wonders: what will wash up on the shore with the next wave? This activity creates an ocean in a jar complete with waves, and will leave your child entranced with the magic of the ocean.
