My kids love going to the beach and learning about ocean life. We needed a new display for our window so I figured a rainbow of marine creatures would be fun and brighten up our sun room.
For red, we created crabs. We painted paper plates red to start (and of course, Q had to paint herself too). Once dry, we folded them in half and the kids glued in pre-cut legs (they helped cut some of the strips), claws, and eyes. Then we folded the plate over and glued it in half. The glue wasn’t holding fast enough so I stapled the plates a couple of times to help it all stay together.
To create an environment for the crabs, I had the kids cut rocks (circles) and seaweed (strips) from construction paper. I cut the little blue bubbles:)
