Sea Action Cards

Did you see this last week on Mess for Less? I was honored to be a guest writer for that super cute blog! If you didn't see it, here it is again...

As you know, I am in the middle of a move. Our house is sold and we move in with family in TWO weeks. Our house hunt is still going strong! So, most of my crafty materials are packed away somewhere, limited what I have been able to do around here with the boys.  Since our family is taking our FIRST family vacation to Sea World in San Antonio next month (SO EXCITED!!!) I decided to try to incorporate something that goes along with the theme of 'oceans' or 'sea' so I could use it with the boys to get them excited for the trip and I could use it during tot school when we get settled into our new house.

I made these action cards (finding clipart through google images) and let the boys play with them after breakfast one morning.
They loved it, which means my pictures are extremely blurry. Sorry about that! Here are a couple of the least blurry ones..

crawling like a crab:

reading the cards:
waddle like a penquin:
chomp like a shark:

body surf like a manatee:
even monkey jumped like a sea horse with us!:
As you can see, this is an easy activity (print and cut!) and your kiddos will love it!
