Learn about oceans zones and layers of the sea with this hands-on animal habitat science project!

Every summer, we seem to gravitate toward ocean science projects and learning about the various ocean layers and animals.

My kids have always been fascinated by ocean animals -- probably because we hardly get to visit any large body of water since we live smack dap in the middle of the country :)

Today's activity focuses on some under-the-sea science questions that will help your kids understand the five layers of the ocean, who lives there and how light travels -- and it's one amazingly beautiful project!

Combining a trip to the playground with a fun scavenger hunt activity for kids is the perfect recipe for an afternoon outdoors.

These indoor and outdoor Easter Egg Hunt ideas are sure to please kids of all ages (toddlers, preschoolers, big kids, tweens & teens) -- heck, even adults will enjoy a few of these!

I grew up in Central New York which means that snow & cold on Easter was a fairly common thing.

My Mom always let us choose special Easter outfits or wear our Spring clothes for the holiday. 

But a pretty yellow dress paired with ugly black snow boots and a big, puffy coat never said “Spring” to me.

Even during a year with a late Easter, there was always the possibility of freezing temps on Easter morning and many times, snow on the ground so our Easter Egg Hunts were held inside.  I had seen outdoor egg hunts on television but it was never something that happened in our neck of the woods.

When I got married and moved to a climate with a lot less snow, I quickly learned that having an outdoor Egg Hunt was a definite possibility!
