Little World Play: The Aquarium

I saw this super idea over on another Mommy blog and knew we had to try it. (As soon as I find the link, I'll add it and give proper credit). If I recall correctly, they even added  water, but after making ours, I decided not to. It certainly made less mess I think, than if water had been added to the fun. :)

A few days earlier we had spent time on the beach and collected some nice shells and rocks and pebbles for the project. Little One absolutely loved collecting all the treasures and it was probably even more fun than making the aquarium. We used aquarium stones to line the bottom of the containers and also added some fake and real greenery from the garden. 
 
So here's our mini Aquarium.


The Nemo Exhibit.


Watch out Mr Diver, that Shark is close-by!
 

Can you spot the crab?


The Aquarium Restaurant.


The jellyfish tank.


In the corner of the picture, you may spot some penguins on rocks. 


This turtle reminds me of the real one we saw when we visited the Aquarium in 2010.


Eels! 


This was a fun activity and really quite easy to do. It could be a nice way to pass the time on a rainy afternoon this coming Winter. 

Till next time, have fun.

What an adorable idea! We were just at the Monterey Bay Aquarium last weekend and I've been looking for a fun way to re-create our visit. I actually found your blog as I was looking at your small world airport and was happily surprise when I also saw this great idea. So excited to explore all of your other projects!

What a fabulous idea! I'll be keeping this one in mind for when I do my oceans theme at school.
