Make a Fish on a Stick!

You can make this fantastic fish from just one piece of card. The side of a cereal box would be ideal. It is best to use masking tape instead of sellotape because then you can paint your sculpture.

Kirigami Ocean Scene

Have you ever heard of kirigami? It's a bit like origami but instead of making things by folding paper, kirigami involves cutting paper in interesting ways. Why not try making a kirigami ocean scene?


You will need some coloured paper. Don't worry if you don't have any sheets of coloured paper, you could use wrapping paper or even sweet papers or crisp packets (but you might want to wash these first).


First you need to fold your paper in half and cut out some shapes. You can do this in lots of different ways. Experiment and see what patterns you can create. You can fold your paper more than once as this will give you even more ways to create an interesting pattern. You then need to shape your paper into a sea creature. If your sea creature is symmetrical, you could fold your paper to help you get a good shape.  

Arrange your sea creatures on a watery background to create your kirigami ocean scene.

Ocean Jars

If you have a small container with a well fitting lid, like a jam jar, you could make an ocean jar.

You will need:

  • Container with a secure lid
  • Oil (vegetable oil works)
  • Water
  • Blue food colouring
  • Beads, googly eyes, sequins, or foam cut outs of ocean life

Fill 1/3 of the container with oil. Add food colouring (1 drop for light blue, 2 for dark).

Fill up the rest of the container with water.

Add in your decorations and secure the lid.
