Every time my kids visit the beach they look for Starfish! We love them so I knew my kids would enjoy some Starfish crafts when they get to make some of their own!
Summer days are meant for trips to the beach. We go there at a few times a week and love exploring all their is to offer from rocks, shells, sand, the waves, seaweed, jellyfish and starfish!
Indeed I have a list of cute ocean crafts for kids already but have saved this post for ones dedicated to Starfish.
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 ideas for Starfish crafts below and many of these are suitable for preschool and older kids!
