Under the Sea Crafts

Hi friends!

Our Ocean theme wouldn't be complete without some adorable crafts to go along with it! Here's what we've been up to craft-wise:

 An Octopus is Amazing is a great, NONFICTION book packed full of interesting facts about the octopus. Our Pre-K students made these adorable paper-towel roll octopi to go along with the story!

The students in the Autism classes got a little crabby last week making these adorable hand-print crabs! (It turned into a great sensory opportunity, too!)

 We also made Waves in a Bottle in Pre-K with oil, water, and food coloring, and the awesome Pre-K teachers had labels printed, tied ribbon around the top, and hot-glued a gem to the top of the bottle to add the final touches!

 Shout out to Jenn at Crazy Speech World for this idea! These sharks were a big hit for my older speech groups. The students chose words with their speech sound(s) in them for great take-home practice and carryover!

 My colleague did these adorable cut-outs with her speech groups! 

And finally, this was a very inexpensive teacher craft: I took a rubber ball and wrote Ocean/Beach/Summer related questions all over it. When the kiddos catch the ball, they choose a question to answer using complete, grammatically correct sentences. Easy and cheap for me, and the kiddos adored it!

Below is an Amazon Affiliate link to An Octopus is Amazing. It's a great non-fictional book that is perfect for an Ocean theme!

Do you have any fun beach or ocean crafts? I'd love to here!
