The ocean is a vast, mysterious place. If 70% of the earth’s surface is covered in water, think of all the amazing sights and magical creatures that live down there! In this month’s ExploreSandbox, we will use our imagination as we create, play, experiment and learn all about the big blue sea.

ExploreSandbox 0031: Under The Sea


Design your own mini-aquarium with pebbles, plants and some sea creatures to recreate life underwater. Just add water and you’re good to go! Have you ever seen a jellyfish swim? You'll be making your very own jellyfish and making it go up and down, up and down...

Have you ever played "I Spy"? Let’s test those sharp little eyes – how many sea creatures are hiding in your ocean ball?  Then, how about a fishing game? You and a friend can have have a contest. The one who catches the most fish wins!

In this simple home experiment, we will learn about water density and how it affects objects in the water.
