Our photography block play activity is designed to inspire the minds of young children and future oceanographers. This activity is a sure way to start engaging kids in photographic storytelling. The places, people, nature and colors captured in each of these photographs are a valuable instructional tool in your creative learning time.
Enjoy this fun, open-ended block play prompt and remember there is no right or wrong way to build. Place blocks together randomly or in patterns. Identify colors, talk about the ocean or build an underwater castle.
