Who knew summer would fly by so fast? Although school has already started, there are many ways to stay on island time in Cocoa Beach.
Read on to see how you can fill your weekends with fun – and educational – activities for you and your family to enjoy.
Take the science room out on the water
The best way to learn is by living out your lessons. It’s one thing to read or hear about science, nature and ecosystems, but why not see it for yourself?
Cocoa Beach offers year-round eco tours throughout the vast Atlantic Ocean and the Banana Lagoon. Get up close to dolphins, manatees, sea turtles, birds, sea rays, sharks, and even a whale once in a while! This way, not only will you see how these animals interact in their home, but you can also learn about their habitats too!
Run like a reptile
Education made fun? We’re in! Cocoa Beach is home to the one and only Dinosaur Store that lets you engage in activities, play arcade games, and see live animals!
Head into The Movie Cave for endless entertainment on a wide array of dinosaurs and culturally related movies. Walk through caves, admire drawings, and interact with museum attractions!
Multiply the many beaches
No matter how long you’ve lived in Cocoa Beach, whether a short time or long, you’ve probably already been to the beach hundreds of times – so this time go in a whole new way.
Take the kids after school and collect seashells. Bring buckets to collect them in and when they are full go back to your towel and spread them out. Help them multiply, add and subtract using something they love! This activity will be anything but boring, and you never know, maybe the kids will learn to love math.
Soar into the sky
What better way to end the day than having fun recess periods? This is the perfect time to process everything that was learned throughout the day while flying above your beautiful town.
Cocoa Beach helicopters offers many tours fit to please anyone. Stop by whenever it fits your schedule – after school, work, or on the weekends. Although it will feel like your relaxing you’re still learning!
We hope this blog gave you some fun ways to keep the summer fun – and education going. Summer may have come to an end but the fun doesn’t have to.
