Recycled Sea Life Creatures
Show kids how to make Recycled Sea Life Creatures from recycled cardboard tubes. While you talk about the various sea creatures you will also be teaching them that recycled materials make great craft supplies. Once you’ve tried our creations, think about what you can make from cardboard tubes. The final projects can be part of class display or a proud piece of artwork displayed for friends and relatives to admire. This craft can have an even greater impact when followed up by reading books about the creatures that inhabit our oceans.
