Ocean learning gift basket

It’s that time of year when many families are starting (or have already started) a new school year. That calls for something fun — like a giveaway! I’ve chosen some of our favorite ocean-themed learning resources to share with you, and one winner will receive the entire contents of this gift basket shipped to you from right here on the North Carolina coast. I even promise to pack in a seashell or two from our beach.

This basket full of oceanic happiness has a total value of over $80!
Here’s what’s included:

Eyewitness OCEAN book

DK books have some of the most fabulous photos, and because of that, they span a wide variety of ages. Even before my youngest could read, he loved looking at the pictures and asking questions. The Eyewitness OCEAN book is one of our favorites.

101 Questions About the Seashore book

All those questions your kids have about things at the beach? This little book will answer them at least 101 of them! 101 Questions About the Seashore.

The Little Island by Margaret Wise Brown

Do you love Goodnight Moon? The Little Island is a sweet book is by the same author and has beautiful illustrations. We’ve used it as a read-aloud but it’s one that I personally enjoy because it stands the test of time and doesn’t feel childish.

Sea turtle puzzle

Y’all know we love sea turtles here, and do our part in helping them by volunteering with the conservation program as nest parents. Even if you’re too far away to assist, you can still appreciate them from afar in the this pretty Ravensburger Ocean Turtles 200-piece jigsaw puzzle.

Seashell coloring book + colored pencils

If you keep this Seashell Patterns coloring book for yourself, I won’t tell. There’s no reason the kids should have all the fun, and many people say these books help them relax and de-stress. If you do decide to share, this coloring book is geared towards older kids with it’s somewhat intricate designs. Still lovely but a little less intricate: the Big Book of Sea Life to Color. I’m including a set of colored pencils, too!

And . . .

Seashore Chalk Pastel Video Art Course: a $40 value!!
