How to Make Sea Urchin Craft

What you need:

  • white cardstock
  • watercolors
  • scissors
  • black liner
  • brush
  • glue
  • magnetic tape (optional, if you want to make a magnet urchin)

Let’s start!

Materials Used

Step by Step Instructions

Draw a watercolor circle on the white cardboard.

Step 1

Cut that circle out.

Step 2

Draw two cute eyes or use googly eyes. Make them a different size so the urchin friend looks silly.

Step 3

Glue the eyes on the circle.

Step 4

Draw a mouth showing teeth using the black liner.

Unlike the real sea urchins that have five sharp teeth that are able to drill a hole in a rock, our urchin pal has regular teeth and can do no harm.

Step 5

Cut a bunch of spines out. Use the white cardstock for this.

They don’t have to be the same size.

Step 6

Glue the spikes on the back side of the body.

Step 7

Put some magnetic tape on the back of the body and you can make a magnet urchin pal that you can place it on the fridge.
