Kids love starfish mainly because of their beautiful shape! I always ask them if they can find anything else a similar shape and they always say you can find stars in the sky at night!

I have lots of different Starfish craft ideas below suitable for all age groups. People often ask what Starfish craft for toddlers is available and I would recommend the footprint craft below.

This simple idea is the perfect ocean craft for toddlers and preschoolers! Us Mums of toddlers are always looking for ideas to enjoy them in crafts so that they do not miss out on all the fun their older siblings are having!

More Starfish Art and Craft Ideas
No matter how many suggestions I provide you can never have enough. Some more ideas can be found here.
Make a starfish puppet – you can use this for pretend play or a moving beach scene craft. Stick a brightly colored decorated paper starfish shape onto a paper bag or add a popsicle stick onto the back of a felt shaped star fish.
Yarn Star fish Craft – I love my yarn crafts for kids and have previously made yarn flowers so it is no surprise I have gone for string art again! Cut out a starfish shape from cardboard, even a used cereal box and wrap it with brightly colored yarn. You can also decorate with some beads or sequins to give it some texture.
