- white glue in squeeze bottles
- colored sand (I used four different colors) in shallow trays
- bamboo skewers
- black construction paper, 9″x12″
- pencils and sketch paper
- reference photos of sea creatures for sketching
Students sketch various sea creatures using pencil and paper.
Each student picks a favorite sketch and draws it on black construction paper. Encourage kids to make simpler, larger designs.
Trace pencil lines with glue.
When kids spill sand on the table….a house paint brush makes clean up easy.
I store leftover sand in old apple juice jugs. At the end of class, I put a funnel in each jug and let the kids pour in their sand.
Seriously fun! This would also be a fun summer camp or vacation art project.
