The shell box....
The Shell Box....
A great resource for children of all ages. The box contains a range of shells and some picture cards of shells. (Excuse the picture of the lovely dog).
How do I use the box?
* Counting skills
* Early number skills - big, little, biggest, smallest....
* Sensory play - tactile.
* Vocabulary development - Rough, smooth, shiny, spotty, patterened.....
* Matching skills
* creativity and Imagination - Beach scenes
You could aslo make shakers with the smaller ones that fit into the bottle and make different sounding shakers.
The possibilities are endless just from one box of shells.
