Passport to Summer Challenge Day 13: Go Nautical!
Today's challenge is to go nautical and have your kids craft sea life creatures!
Here are some examples of sea life crafts:
Contact paper jellyfish- For this craft you will need clear contact paper, ribbon, and items to decorate the jellyfish such as glitter, sequins, stickers, etc. To start, cut the contact paper to make a large "D" shape and cut the ribbon for the tentacles. Have your kids peel the backing paper off the sheet of contact paper. Turn the contact paper so that the rounded part is facing up and let them decorate their jellyfish. Your kids could either put the tentacles on first or decorate the body first.
Paper plate fish- For this craft all you'll need is a paper plate, scissors, glue, markers and/or crayons. Have your kids color the paper plate. Draw eyes or add googly eyes. Then cut a small triangle from the front of the plate to make a mouth. Take the triangle cut-out and glue it to the back of the fish for the tail.
Toilet paper roll octopus- For this craft you will need an empty toilet paper roll, paint or markers, and googly eyes. First have your kids color or paint the toilet paper roll whatever color they want the octopus to be. Then have them add googly eyes. Finally, cut seven little slits on the bottom and fold up the edges to make the octopus legs.
