Summertime is the best time for crafts.
When you’re not on vacation or lounging by the pool, filling your kids free time with ocean themed crafts is the next best thing to being there in real life.
Most kids love the ocean and learning all about the animals that live there, but for us, there’s one little creature that’s extra special:
Seahorses are so unique, unusual and fun that we created a fun little craft and activity to go with a favorite book of ours, Over In The Ocean.
If you haven’t read this book, stop what you’re doing and borrow or purchase it!
This book is one of the most beautifully illustrated books ever made and it has a fun rhyming story kids love to go with it.
Read on below and watch the video to see how we made this craft with an easy to use seahorse template.
