Dive deep into the ocean and do some fine motor skill practice while you are making this cute ocean animal craft.

We love to inspire creativity and hope that this idea will spin off to become many different creations, but we also know that sometimes a template is super helpful, so we created one (well two) for this craft too.

You can just use the paper strips to make this craft or you can first color in the template to make this woven paper craft even more vibrant.

  1. Thank you for these different crafts. I work with deaf and hard-of-hearing youngsters at the Deaf Services Center at the San Francisco Public Library. Your crafts are easy and fun. Oh, and I do them with my grandchildren too :-). I wish I had seen the tissue flowers with the cookie cutter shapes sooner. I did a mom’s day/May flowers program and searched and searched for flower crafts. Yours is by far the best, cutest and easiest!! Can’t wait for the Father’s Day story time to do the fish!
