  2. Then chop the cucumber into slices, and arrange as shown in the picture. Now your child can add some big waves out of blueberries. As your child adds waves to their boat, why not talk about the sea and all the creatures that live under those waves? Pretend to be a shark and nibble their fingers, or pretend to be a kissing fish and give them a great big smooch!
