This week was probably little man’s favorite! It combined his two favorite things, water and baby shark! If you do not know who baby shark is, you will soon find out! I played the baby shark song for little man when he was about two months old, and it was an instant hit!
Little man absolutely loves the 10 little fishies song on the Super Simple Songs YouTube channel. Super simple’s website has some great resources, including these flashcards that are perfect to use when singing. Baby shark (little man’s favorite song), also has flashcards.
We also have two ocean themed puzzles that little man loves looking at, as well as trying to put the pieces in his mouth! The fishbowl puzzle is so easy for little hands to grab, and the deep sea dive puzzle is foam, which unfortunately seems to be great to chew on, haha!

Little man loves turtles, so we made this sea turtle sensory bag! Just make sure to double bag it; you do not want hair gel everywhere!
Water play is probably little man’s favorite activity! He loves the water! I found these adorable ocean bath toys, and we play with them every night at bath time! Now that little man can sit up, he loves trying to grab as many of them as he can! He also loves when we squirt water on him!
Since little man loves Super Simple’s, Baby Shark, we made our own baby shark! Read how to make your own, here. Not crafty? Purchase one instead! Little man loves his plush baby shark!

My daughter loves the water . However she refuses to get into the blow up pool . I love all of these water based educational ideas .
Awh! My little man is not a huge fan of our little pool either! He will get in, but he definitely prefers a big pool! Oh, and it has to be warm! Haha!
Some super cute ideas here!
Thanks for sharing! It’s super cold here so these activities seem like so much fun to enjoy indoors. My kids love anything water related!
