Make marine creatures with your child

Make marine creatures with your child

3 years

Offer your kid to make marine creatures – fish and jellyfish.

Before crafting look at various pictures and photos of the underwater world. Together, watch films about marine life, read some appropriate books for kids. You can even go the oceanarium to view the fish and other sea creatures.

Then offer your kid to make the crafts.

You'll need:


  • white disposable paper plates;
  • scissors, a stapler;
  • corrugated paper;
  • gouache or watercolors, brushes, a jar of water;
  • white paper, a black marker.

Take the paper plate and cut out a segment as it is shown on the photo below – it will be a tail fin.

Then attach the tail tin to the fish body with a stapler:

Cut out other tins of white paper and also attach them with a stapler.

Offer your kid to color the funny fish! When the paints dry, draw the fish eyes on white paper with a black marker, cut them out and glue to the craft:
