Make An Ocean Diorama

This is a fun and creative project for any age!

 

You will need:

A Box - Shoeboxes are good

Construction Paper

Tissue Paper

Thread

A Large Tapestry Needle

Toothpicks

Scissors

Glue

Pictures or Photographs of Ocean Animals

OR

Some Ocean Animals Clipart





 

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!
