The summer brings warm weather and trips to the beach. While we can’t all visit the beach, one can dream, add these beach I spy graphing printables to your child’s day to warm up their counting skills. Great for early learners and preschool-aged children!
If your child loves this summer activity, check out our list of Summer Worksheets for Kids for more.
We homeschool through the summer after a short break at the start of July. This keeps our kids on a schedule and allows us to take some time off during the year without any worries. This also makes it easier to ease back into our full schedule in September.
And since we do homeschool pretty much year-round besides the short break that I mentioned above, we love to incorporate fun themes as we’re working through our printables. (and between you and me, beach themes are some of my favorites to do because who doesn’t love the thought of summer and the beach?!)

Beach I Spy Graphing Printables
As you can see from the printables, they’re great for early learners to be able to focus on and complete them on their own.
Anytime I can have them working on an activity that is going to build their confidence and their knowledge, I feel great about that fact and will continue to foster that learning environment.
These printable summer learning activities are just one of the ways to continue to learn over the summer.

Beach I Spy Graphing Printable
What you need to get started can be found below. This activity is great because it’s so fast and simple to do.
- Printer (I have this one)
Print out the graphing printables. Have your child use a crayon or marker to color in the blocks as they count the items they find.
Use I Spy printables to make counting fun for kids who are learning to count to 20.
There are 3 pages of these printables that progress in difficulty. The one shown in the picture is the easiest and then it gets harder with each page so hopefully it will challenge your child.
Extend the activity by adding the recommended beach books below, visiting the beach and collecting seashells, having your kids plan a trip to the beach, and packing their bags. Watch ocean documentaries and have them create a diorama about what they’ve learned.
Recommended Beach Books for Kids
When you can’t make it to the beach, bring the beach to your home with these amazing beach books to bring the ocean air inside.
We’re big fans of combining reading into our daily lives with our learning worksheets any time that we can. I’ve found that the more that the kids read about certain topics and themes, the more excited and geared up they get for the printables, too.
