Creative Play Quick Tip: Be a Beach Detective!

Creative Play Quick Tip: Beach Detectives

Wearing your sunglasses and beach hat, become a sleuth of the shore! Use a shovel to scoop sand onto a sifter, then shake away the sand to reveal “clues.” Take a closer look with a magnifier, collect clues in a bucket or beach bag, or record findings in a beach detective notebook. Then use your imagination to make up a beach detective story that explains what you’ve found.

For example, maybe you’ve just discovered some priceless dinosaur eggs (white rocks) that were stolen from a famous museum!
