Starfish Ocean Craft for Kids


This cute starfish craft is a great activity for summer, an ocean theme for preschool, or even for no other reason than to have a cute starfish friend!
Check it out!



Supplies:
  • White paper
  • Tempera Paint - orange, yellow, purple. Or any other colors you want on your starfish! (ps. I highly recommend this Crayola Tempera Paint.)
  • Hole Puncher
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Googly Eyes
  • Black marker


How to Make it:
  1. Paint a couple pieces of paper in the different colors you have chosen for your starfish. (We used a combination of yellow and orange on a paper for the starfish body, and other colors for the spots)
  2. Let the paint dry for a few hours, or overnight.
  3. Cut out a starfish shape (you can draw a shape on paper until you get it how you'd like it. Some starfish are fat, some are skinny. Some pointy and some round. There are many possibilities!)
  4. With a hole punch, punch out some small circles from the other colors of papers you painted.
  5. Glue on the small circles, and the googly eyes.
  6. Draw a smile with a black marker. All done!


And here are some cute books to go along with this fun starfish craft!

Ice Cream Cone Summer Craft for Kids


Summer wouldn't be complete without a yummy, drippy ice cream cone!
And that is the inspiration for this easy and fun Ice cream cone craft for kids! A perfect craft for summer, or anytime of the year. Because in my opinion, every day is a good day for ice cream.
(P..S. Popsicles are also pretty good)


Supplies:

How to Make it:
  1. Cut out a tall triangle from the brown craft foam.
  2. Cut out at least 3 ice cream scoop shapes from any colors of craft foam you'd like. The shape is basically a half circle on the top, with a little bit of a puffy cloud shape on the bottom.
  3. Use the tan construction paper and cut out 6 very thin strips. 
  4. Glue the tan paper strips cross ways on the cone, then cut off the edges that overhang. This will give it the waffle cone look.
  5. One at a time, glue the ice cream shapes to the top of the cone and then on top of each other.
  6. Let dry and all done!
