Thank you to FloraCraft® for sponsoring this post!
With the end of the school year drawing near, I’ve got a fun and Easy Kids Craft for you today. I love projects that kids can complete at any skill level. Not only are these fun, but aren’t they adorable?
Here are the supplies we used to create our Aquatic Creatures. As you can tell, you can be creative with what you choose to make. Each creature might require something different.
- Make It: Fun® Foam Eggs
- acrylic craft paints and brushes
- coordinating sequines
- coordinating glitter decorative sheets (found in felt section)
- grey foam for shark
- googly eyes
- purple pipe cleaners for octopus legs
OPTIONAL (These tools will just help make the task easier- Use the foam cutter to help create slits in the foam to insert the fins and tail, and use the mini dowels secured in the 1/2″ foam to hold the eggs up for easy painting and glueing to keep it hands free):
- foam tools
- mini dowels or skewers
- Make It: Fun® 1/2″ Foam Sheet
- Paint your foam. You can leave the underside white if you like.
- Cut your fins and and tail.
- Cut out your sharks sharp teeth with white cardstock.
- Use foam cutter or scissors to add slits to glue in tail and fins. Attach.
- Next up you’ll glue on the shark mouth and googly eyes.
DIY Sequin Fish
- First paint eggs and allow to dry.
- While paint is drying cut out your fins and tail from glitter felt sheets.
- Glue together tail pieces.
- Cut slits for tail and fins and glue them on.
- Next you’ll glue on sequins. Use kid-safe glue to secure, or hot glue with the help of an adult.
- When sequins are glued on and dried, you can then glue on googly eyes.
- First paint foam and allow to dry.
- Next you’ll start adding on sequins and pipe cleaner tentacles.
- Curl the pipe cleaners around your fingers to create a curl.
- When sequins are dry add on googly eyes.
I hope you give these fun crafts a try! If you couldn’t tell, our Make it: Fun® Team Challenge this month was using these Make it:Fun® Foam Eggs for a kids craft. These are so great and you can use the foam eggs for so many variations. Farm animals, dinosaurs, and my son has plans to use them to create faux grenades.
