Grab your large sensory bin and add blue marbles, blue gems, fish and other under the sea creatures and toys.

On the inside of the sea shells, use a black sharpie to write out the sight words you want your little one to practice reading and spelling.

On blue pebbles, write out the individual letters needed to spell each of the sight words you wrote on the sea shells.

Toss everything into the sensory bin and add water. You can also add a drop of blue food colouring to the water but it is not required. I would do this if you do not have blue marbles or blue pebbles and you are using stones instead.

Find and Spell Sight Words

Have your little one find a sea shell and read out the word. Then have them spell the word using the blue pebbles!

This was a total hit with my 4.5 year old. She played while she practiced her sight words and did not even realize she was learning!
