Seashells by the Seashore Books & Activities

The theme for this month’s Nature Book Club was Beach, Sand, & Shells. We live in southeastern Ohio and don’t have much access to beaches, so I had to get a bit creative this month. Thankfully we have several seashells & seashore books in our home library so that we could read about the beach, sand, & shells.

Seashells by the Seashore was our favorite book to read this month, it inspired our seashell sorting and counting activity.

When you don’t have access to a beach, then you have to buy some sand & seashells. But Everett didn’t mind one bit. He really enjoyed playing in the sand, sorting and counting the seashells.

I have also created these hand-drawn seashells notebooking and coloring pages. You can download your copy in the Printables Resource Library for Subscribers.
