Under The Sea Craft Instructions:

Take the coloured paper you've chosen for this craft and trace each shape onto your paper. Cut each shape out with paper scissors.

Don't feel limited to follow the shapes, though! You can always have fun using your imagination and drawing your own shapes.

STEP 2: Start creating your shapes!

Find your inspiration and let your creativity lead the way on this step! Combine the circle and triangular shape to design a fish shape, or even use a trapezium and a triangle if that's more your style.

To create the jellyfish, it's even easier. You just need to take the arch shape to use as the body part and a few thin stripes to add at the bottom side of the jellyfish.

Remember to use craft glue to put all the pieces of each fish together and let it dry before continuing.

STEP 3: Add the eyes.

Next, take your googly eyes and glue them to the sea creatures we just created in the previous step. Using a black marker, draw a smile on each one!

STEP 4: Create the undersea background.

Now it's time to take your blue coloured paper and use it as the undersea background. Prepare the paper and then glue the paper sea creatures onto it, creating the undersea scene. Make sure you are happy with your under the sea craft before gluing!
