These rockin’ paper sharks are fun, easy and fast to craft and look great as part of any under the sea display or in an ocean themed room!
Here’s what you’ll need
Coloured card (blues, greys, white)
Sticker eyes (optional)
Something circular to draw around (optional)
How to make these cute rocking sharks
Start by drawing around the outside of your circular object and then cutting out your circle piece of paper and folding it in half.
Next take your white paper and cut out a shape with a straight side and then a curved edge. Glue it into position as the shark’s mouth and then trim off any excess. use a black marker to draw on some sharp pointy teeth and then colour in the space between the teeth.
Next take your coloured paper and cut out a long shark’s tail, a side fin and a large dorsal fin. glue the tail in place inside the folded circle, the dorsal fin on the top rear side of the circle and the fin on the front.
Finish off your rockin’ paper sharks by adding a fun Googly eye to each one. We just love these!
We’re carrying on the whale theme today with this adorable toilet roll humpback whale craft! These little under the sea themed cuties were so much fun to make and my little boy as a huge lover of all things do with the ocean is just besotted with them!
They’re really simple and easy to make so why not give them a go with your little ones! We’d love to see how they turn out – did you know you know we now have a Facebook page? You can share them there!
Here’s what we used
Blue, pink and white paint
How to make a toilet roll humpback whale
Take the toilet roll and paint the inside of one end pink. On the outside of the roll paint one half blue/grey and the other half white before popping aside to dry.
Cut out a whale’s tail shape and glue it in position on the inside of the paper roll (at the opposite end to the pink section) Next cut out two leaf shape flippers and fold a small tab at the end of each one which you can then use to glue them on either side of the tp roll body.
Once the paper roll is dry, take the black marker/crayon and draw several lines along the white section of the body to create the whale’s throat pleats.
Glue a googly eye on either side of the whale and optionally you could always add a little dorsal fin using the same method as with the fins. Once totally dry and secure the toilet roll humpback whale is finished and ready to play with or display!
We’re back again today with yet another ocean themed craft. We absolutely love this cute handprint fish craft! Each little fish turns out sweet and unique which makes this craft perfect for both crafting at home or crafting at groups such as preschools or toddler groups. We had so much fun making these, my little guy has made a whole aquarium to cover his door. He loves all things ocean and really wants us to get a saltwater tank – I wouldn’t know where to start though!
Heres what we used
Plain and coloured paper
First you will need to take your pencil and draw around little one’s hands. Then, cut out the handprints that you have just made.
Now it’s time for the fun part! Use your paint to colour in your handprints and make your own cool fish designs. Then, put them aside to dry.
Once dry, glue your fish down in place on your paper. Give each of your fish an eye and a mouth and then cut out and stick down some circle bubbles.
Finish off your awesome ocean picture by adding some seaweed and any other little details. Doesn’t this Cute handprint fish craft just look adorable?
