What’s your favorite ocean art? Here are some fun ideas to get you started on seashore art of your own:
Collect some shells and make a rubbing. Gather a few shells with interesting patterns on them, like scallop shells, and place them under a piece of paper. Peel the paper off a crayon (or use chalk) and turn it on its side. Then rub lightly over the paper. You’ll end up with images of the shells in a very artistic way.
Create a brand-new octopus. What else could an octopus have on its eight arms: vacuum cleaners? Pool noodles? Spaghetti? Come up with an octopus no one’s ever seen before, then give it a name.
Underwater scene. What does the deep ocean look like? Draw an underwater scene with fish, plants, and maybe even a shipwreck. Now, what do you imagine might live in the ocean that scientists have never seen? Create a creature or two.
