I love encouraging my kids to explore the ocean and what it entails. We live quite close to the beach so we venture there often and love collecting stuff.

These are some crafts you can do when you return with treasures.

Have the kids find and collect things like:

  • Shells
  • Sand
  • Starfish
  • Rocks

This will give some great memories of the fun days at the beach.

I always encourage them to watch the waves and think what might live there! 

My ocean kids crafts are suitable from preschool right up to older kids! They get to make octopus, squid, dolphin, crab, mermaids and lots more!

We use a range of different materials and have step by step craft guides to help you create lots of cool things!
