Cupcake liners are inexpensive craft tools, and this article will provide you with detailed instructions on creating an ocean life scene using cupcake liners with your kids.
This ocean life craft project has several components, and you can feel free to let your imagination run wild when crafting with your kids. For the base of the craft project you will need a blue piece of construction paper, and I will discuss the supplies need for each part of this kids craft individually. This will allow you leave out things you do not want without missing supplies for the parts you plan on creating.
Sand is an important part of the ocean floor, and you can create sand easily using cupcake liners. For this part of the craft you will need several beige colored cupcake liners, glue, and scissors. Start this craft with kids by deciding how you want your ocean floor to go, and glue a layer of cupcake liners at this height.
Next help kids add another row towards the bottom, and continue until the entire bottom section is covered. Allow the glue to dry, and help kids trim the excess cupcake liners down to the original size and shape of the paper.
Seaweed is another important part of your ocean life scene, and it is easy to make. For this craft you will need green cupcake liners, scissors, and glue. Start the seaweed by helping kids cut a wiggly line down the center of the cupcake liner. Next help them cut another line about a pencil’s width next to the first one.
Remember to follow your original line so that the shape looks kind of like a snake. Finally cut the ends of both lines into points, and glue several pieces of seaweed to the sand part of your ocean life landscape.
