Ocean Pack of Centers, activities, research, crafts for pre-k & kindergarten
This "Ocean Pack" of pre-k and kindergarten activities and centers is going to be so much fun for the little learners in your life! This is my favorite pack yet! I created this pack because my preschooler loves all things ocean. It is kid approved!
