I got the idea for this one from here and here. Both of these are about the same and I can't remember which one I saw first so I might as well credit them both.
I made a few basic ocean shapes out of the foam sheets that we had leftover from our bath stickers and sticky story boards. Some real sea shells would be really fun for this as well, although you'd want to make sure they don't have sharp points.
|I did a piece of coral, a starfish, a fish, and a shell. You could add a octopus or jellyfish or anything else you can dream up (and draw). The details are drawn on with a fine tip permanent marker.|
I turned the kids loose with these and they loved them. Erik liked hunting through the soap bubbles to find the shapes and Paisley preferred to just shake the heck out of hers.
