Our Under the Sea treat and Under the Sea Printable pack was such a huge hit I wanted to expand on the under the sea ocean theme – plus this craft goes great with Dr. Seuss’ One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish children’s book! This under the sea paper plate craft is REALLY simple and pretty self explanatory but below is a step by step tutorial for you to make your own.
Under the Sea Paper Plate Craft Materials:
Under the Sea Paper Plate Craft Directions:
Begin by letting the child color or paint the paper plate blue. Let dry. If you’re pressed for time or don’t want the mess you can also use blue cellophane to cover the plate instead.
Cut thin strips of green felt or fabric and glue onto the bottom of the plate as shown above to simulate seaweed. Then simply glue on the Goldfish crackers! You can color coordinate them if you’re combining the project with a Dr. Seuss craft or simply take a handful and glue them on! This would pair wonderfully with the Real Feels Under the Sea book.
