Paper Plate Ocean Pals

Looks like the weather’s really heating up now! Get ready with some fun beach-themed crafts.  Those of you who barbequed this Memorial Day Weekend may have extra paper plates lying around. Put them to good use with some adorable paper plate beach creatures.


With a few basic supplies, you can create crabs, whales, fish, the sun, seahorses, turtles, jellyfish, birds, and whatever else your set your imagination to!

For all of these fun oceanic buddies, you’ll need plain paper plates, paint, construction paper, scissors, and glue. Optional supplies include googly eyes, streamers, markers, and anything else you feel like using!
