Make An Ocean Diorama
This is a fun and creative project for any age!
You will need:
A Box - Shoeboxes are good
A Large Tapestry Needle
Pictures or Photographs of Ocean Animals
Some Ocean Animals Clipart
Take a seat at your adjustable desk or just desk
and layout all the things you will need. Working on a flat service
generally makes things safer and the project much easier to make.
These are some general guidelines. Please be creative!
Step One: Cover the top and sides of the inside of the box with blue construction paper. Cover the bottom of the inside of the box with a sand colored construction paper.
Step Two: Choose what animals you want in your diorama. Cut them out and color them, if necessary.
Step Three: Glue animals that you want to appear swimming onto a piece of thread. Let dry. Have mom or dad poke a small hole in the top of the box. Bring up the thead through the hole and tie a knot at the desired length. Cut off excess thread.
Step Four: Glue animals that you want to stand at the bottom of the box to a toothpick. Let dry. Trim the toothpick, if necessary, so that it doesn't show. Have mom or dad poke a small hole at the bottom of the box and glue the toothpick into the hole.
Step Five: Tear pieces of tissue paper and glue to the bottom of the box to make ocean plants.
Step Six: When you are happy with your diorama, cover the outside top and sides with construction paper. Enjoy!
