Creative Play Quick Tip: Beach Detectives

Creative Play Quick Tip: Beach Detectives

Wearing your sunglasses and beach hat, become a sleuth of the shore! Use a shovel to scoop sand onto a sifter, then shake away the sand to reveal “clues.” Take a closer look with a magnifier, collect clues in a bucket or beach bag, or record findings in a detective notebook. Then use your imaginations to make up a story that explains what you’ve found. For example, maybe you’ve just discovered the priceless dinosaur eggs (white rocks) that were stolen from the museum!
