8 Under the sea craft ideas

Under the sea is a theme that has some great craft opportunities for toddlers and young children. We spent just over a month making everything from a lobster to a starfish and created a colourful display, adding our creations to it every time we finished something new. As well as enjoying making the various sea themed animals this was also a good way to teach my son about the ocean and the animals that live there. We visited the aquarium, read sea themed books like Julia Donaldsons Sharing A Shell and because it was summer we went rock pooling on holiday.


Follow the links below to find out how we made each of the under the sea crafts for our display.
