At home we’ve been reading The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister and it has inspired some fun sea creature craft activities.
First we made a paper mosaic fish with shiny foil scales and then we created some paper fish hands, which we used our dot markers and some googly eyes to decorate.
I’ve discovered so many amazing sea creature craft ideas that I thought I’d share a few of my favourites.
A good old paper plate can be tranformed into a range of different sea creatures. Paper plate craft is fun, simple and inexpensive. I love this jelly fish from Entertaining Little Ones.
This paper plate turtle by Fireflies and Mud Pies is super cute too, another simple yet effective sea creature craft activity.
If you’re little one likes to paint, how about this celery stamping idea by Crafty Morning. I love a bit of vegetable printing, vegetables are perfect for little hands to grip hold of and they create really interesting shapes. What a fun way to paint a beautiful, bright Rainbow Fish!
My little one loves to sing Baby Shark at the moment so I’ve been having a look at shark craft ideas. I discovered this brilliant newspaper shark craft activity by I Heart Crafty Things. So simple, but with very striking results.
If you’d like to make lots of different sea creatures you could create an ocean creatures mobile. If you head over to Baker Ross they have a free template that you can use to make one.
I hope you like these sea creature craft ideas as much as I do.
