The UNDER THE SEA Crate includes the following 3 activities:
- Dancing Jelly Fish Craft: Your child will make an adorable jelly fish that dances all around. They won't even realize that they are building hand muscle strength by tearing the bleeding tissue paper and lacing the fabric through the holes.
- Chomp! Can you feed the hungry shark? Build your own catapult to launch sea creatures in the shark's mouth. But wait, before you can attempt to feed the shark, you need to read a number. This can be a simple one digit number, a more complex two digit number, or even by combining two numbers together in a simple addition equation. Base ten rods and units included to make the learning concrete.
- Under the Sea Discovery Bottle with Search and Find Activity Mats: Make your own discovery bottle, then turn and shake the bottle to see if you can locate the items on the search and find mats. Also discuss with your child which animals live in the water and which live on land. There are even some things that don't belong in the ocean at all! Can you find them?

Each month, your Tinkering Toddler Crate will be delivered to your door jam packed with all the materials needed to complete three activities with your toddler or preschool-age child (3-4 years old). In addition to the materials, your will get step-by-step directions with photos, guiding questions for the adult to ask the child and suggestions for how to get the most out of each activity in the crate.
Monthly themes will be timely and often will reflect what is going on in that month (holidays, events, etc.). Toddlers learn a great deal through their senses which is why sensory bins are an amazing tool to utilize at this age and why we always have one sensory bin activity included. The actual plastic tub is not included due to shipping constraints, but all the materials needed to fill it are. Other activities include ways to introduce colors, shapes, numbers, letters, etc. in fun and engaging ways. Each activity has been tested with children and is purposeful in why it was included. The activities are designed to help your child meet their developmental milestones (a handy reference/checklist of these is also included) and will give you ideas of things you can do with your child to help them flourish.
Tinkering Toddler Crates are created by an elementary teacher and curriculum developer and now a mother of a preschooler.
