Make-your-own Seahorse!

By Jacalyn Modrzynski, Lead Educator

I always look forward to May’s Newsletter because I have a chance to share about National Water Safety Month! For more information on National Water Safety Month Click Here. You can find water safety tips, swim lessons, learn what to do in an emergency, and more.

A fun way to play in the water is to imagine that you’re a sea creature! You can be a big whale, a sea turtle, a mystical mermaid, or a seahorse! How would each of these creatures swim in the water?

If you’re not quite ready to get your feet or fins wet, here’s a fun water-themed craft.  You can make your own seahorse using some materials you may have around the house!

What you’ll need:

  • A seahorse template. Click Here for our explore and more template
  • Markers, crayons, or watercolors.
  • A glue stick.
  • Cupcake liners, crepe paper, or recycled newspaper.
  • Scissors.

What to do:

  • Decorate your seahorse, I used watercolors to decorate mine.
  • Cut up your extra paper into triangles, I used cupcake liners.
  • Decorate your triangles, I painted mine different colors.
  • Cut your seahorse out (optional)
  • Glue the triangles to the back of the seahorse.

You’re done! Pretend your seahorse is under the sea and have him swim around!

If you loved this craft, we’re making crafts as cute as this one every day in our Under the Sea camp. You can sign up here.

Wishing you a fun and safe summer!
