Shark Week Sensory Activity! Chomp Chomp!
Updated: Nov 17, 2020
Shark Infested Jell-O & Graham Cracker Sand Beach!
This edible, ocean themed sensory activity is the perfect way to celebrate Discovery Channel’s #SharkWeek! So…what are you ‘wading’ for?
What You Will Need:
Box of Nabisco Graham Crackers
A Shallow Baking/Casserole Dish (We use this Libbey Dish for ALL our sensory activities!)
Sea Life Bath Toys/Large Shells
Step 1: Make your Jell-O! Once placed in the fridge, the Jell-O will take a few hours to firm.
Step 2: While your Jell-O is setting, blend your Grahams into a fine powder that resembles sand. Use the ‘Pulse’ setting on your blender.
Step 3: When ready, add your Graham Cracker Sand and Jell-O to the shallow baking dish.
Step 4: Decorate your seascape with shark bath toys and textured, large shells that can be used as shovels for digging and stamps when pressed into the sand. We used the shark and whale from this Amazon Sea Life Bath Toy Set!
Step 5: PLAY! (and EAT 😉) See the photo below!
