We are SO excited about this product. We have many educational products in the works for the future, but this one is the first, and it is an absolutely essential addition to your Sea Glory Swim summer set. In case you didn't know, our brand is all about marine education for kids, and our hand-painted swimwear designs actually have sea creature species that you can find in your local rockpool!
Our Rockpool ID Slip Loop is a little invention that we made for our up and coming mini marine scientists. Simply slip the loop over a plastic lid that you have in your kitchen, and all of a sudden, you will have a waterproof clipboard with all the scientific information that you need to go and identify the species you find on the rock platform. On one side, you will find classified groups of species, and on the other side, you will find a treasure map, or what the scientists like to call a 'species distribution' map. The map will help you to see where on the rock platform particular species would be located.
This is such a GREAT activity for kids. It is both fun and educational. We like to call it 'treasure hunting'. We recommend taking a little plastic container from home and collecting your treasures and live species (only safe ones!), and sitting down on the rock platform with your Rockpool ID Slip Loop, and matching up the things you found. You can then have a look at the swimmers you are wearing and see if you can match the species you found with your swimwear pattern as well.
If you want to collect the whole set and take the activity one step further, then you must get our Rockpool ID Story Stones. These story stones have the same species hand printed onto the stones, so that your little ones can not only play with the species and make little stories in the sand, but they can match them up with the Rockpool ID Slip Loop as well. The opportunities with these extra educational items are endless.
