Ocean in a Bag

After our recent field trip to the Aquarium, we put together our own ocean in a bag. 

It was fun, easy, and could be {mostly} done unassisted by a 2.5 year old. 

Hair Gel {blue; or clear and use blue food coloring}
Sea creatures
Plastic bags

All items {minus the shells, of course} can be found at the dollar store. If your dollar store, like mine, doesn't have blue hair gel, use the clear gel with just a drop of two or food coloring. Also, if you can't find the little plastic sea creatures, you can use colored foam sheets to cut out the shapes of the animals. 

Bubba liked squishing the gel, and I liked seeing the light reflect through.
