There are few things in life more satisfying than spending time at the seaside. There’s something about the sand under your feet, the smell of the sea, the noise of the waves crashing, the contrasts of the colours, that just make for a spectacular experience.
We love it so much, that one of our termly themes in Wriggle and Rhyme’s toddler music and movement programme is “a trip to the seaside”.
Above: Wriggle and Rhyme’s Colin the Crab visits us in one of our music and movement programmes! He usually lives in a little rock pool at the beach.
A visit to the seaside can also include exploration of the little rock pools along the coastline. This offers a great opportunity to explore the richness and beauty of the sea and all the creatures that inhabit it.
Above: Wriggle and Rhyme’s Sidney the Squid is also a regular visitor in our seaside programme.
But, in winter, sometimes it’s tricky to get down to the beach with very little people. In Cape Town especially, the cold north-wester can feel like it’s blowing right through you. The sea water seems colder than usual, and it’s certainly not as pleasant to feel the cold sand between your toes!
Bearing in mind how much we love the seaside, even in winter, … this month we’ve teamed up with our friends at the Two Oceans Aquarium at the Waterfront. (http://www.aquarium.co.za)
The Two Oceans Aquarium is such a special place to visit … especially for children. There’s so much to see and do … so many underwater miracles to enjoy up close.
You can enter our competition to win an ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP (for two adults and two children). This means that you can continue to explore the wonder of the seaside, even in the cold winter months.
What better way to spend time together as a family than multiple trips to the Two Oceans Aquarium in the year ahead!
With the idea of GROWING TOGETHER as a family being part of this competition, we’ve also giving two lucky winners each a copy of our unique and original GROWING TOGETHER CD.
GROWING TOGETHER is a musical adventure all about an adventure to the seaside, packed with original songs and a sweet story about friendship. You can listen to a clip here … http://www.wriggleandrhyme.co.za/our-music
