My little guy is a huge fan of all things under the sea. He loves to learn about the ocean environment and the creatures that live within it. Whales are his absolute favourite and it’s easy to see why, they’re pretty impressive. Right now he’s really interested in Narwhals. Hence today’s craft; this cute paper plate Narwhal! Isn’t he cute?
You will need
Black and white card
First you’ll need to draw your whale shape on to your paper plate as you can see above (once I have a functioning scanner I will scan in my template so watch this space!). Cut out your whale shape and paint it in your chosen colour. Put your narwhal aside to dry.
Once dry, it’s time to give your Narwhal an eye! Cut out a black circle for the base of the eye, then cut out a white circle and a another smaller white circle to make the light spots. Glue the pieces together to make the eye and then glue it down in place on your narwhal.
Cut out a white cone shape to make the tusk and then use your black marker to draw on the lines. Glue the tusk down in place on the back of your paper plate.
Finish off your super cute Narwhal by using your black marker to draw on a smiley mouth and a flipper. Doesn’t he look sweet!?
If you've followed the blog at all you will know that my son is mad about all things under the sea. He loves learning about the ocean environment and its inhabitants though his books and we read some of national geographic kids ultimate oceanpedia almost every single day. He loves watching documentaries together too and more often than not hes the one teaching me something new! It was actually him who gave me the idea for this cute paper plate jellyfish
Today I'm back again with another pipe cleaner craft! We had so much fun making these yesterday and came up with some really fun little ideas. I think though that these pipe cleaner snail magnets are my favourite of the day. They're just so adorable and once you get the hang of them they're really easy to make too. We have a whole garden full of them on our fridge right now!
How sweet are these little pipe cleaner apple magnets? It took us a couple of tries to perfect them but now weve got them figured and wanted to share them with you all! In fact, we've got so good at making them that it only takes us a few minutes on each. My son recently Made some sweet apple and worm cards for his teachers as due to current situation he wont be going back to school this year and he wanted to make extra to gift them too. Such a sweet little idea!
