In this post: Ocean crafts and study. Plus a shell study.
Hello dear ones, this Summer we used our crafts to decorate the homeschool room for the beginning of the year. We have a sea theme. So we got a head start. Here are pictures and you can find the links on my Pinterest at the end.
Michael was given two big boxes of shells from my grandma and grandpa. He used them to decorate our homeschool room.
He also made a shell notebook.
He made necklaces as well and gave them to his buddies. Then Michael did a shell lapbook.
Michael did an ocean animal lapbook. He checked out books on ocean animals from the library.
I bought ocean paper and covered our school door and the area near the reading pool. I got the ocean creature cut outs from the Dollar Tree awhile back. I used bubble wrap to make the bubbles, and crepe paper for the seaweed.
I stapled ribbon to shower caps to make the jelly fish. I hung blue and green crepe paper to make the room feel like it was under the sea.
Michael made these origami boats.
Leeland and I made this starfish with his feet.
The jellyfish are from Michael and Leeland’s hands.
Michael made a crab, an oyster, and coral from egg cartons. I made coral from split pool noodles.
I drew the octopus and Michael splattered it with paint.
Michael made a puffer fish using a fork (not pictured).
We made socktopuses from socks.
Michael and I put together this ocean diorama.
We put foam stickers on the bottom of our flip flops and made these nifty prints. We hope to leave cool impressions in the sand when we go to the beach.
God bless & remember the High King lives! ~ Amber Dover
