Super Simple Paper Plate Sea Collage

A quick little post from me today as I was just looking through some old photos and found this sweet paper plate sea collage that my daughter made – how could I forget to share this?! We love all ocean crafts (you can see all our sea crafts for kids here) ad this was inspired by a sea collage we’d seen out on a walk that week – ¬†while it’s super simple it’s also super cute too. As is often the case here it’s made with things that we already had around the house, no news there as I very rarely get any advance warning from the kids!

Making your paper plate sea collage

I did this activity with my daughter on one of those days when I knew that she was going to be knackered after nursery so a lot of it was prepped in advance – I cut out the blue background from the sea and the fish shapes from yellow and orange card and I think we did the strips of green seaweed together. Of course if your kid is older / less absolutely knackered then it’s a great way to practice scissor skills together.

We stuck the blue background onto the plate and then my daughter got busy making her sea collage, I did one too because hey it looked like fun and I wanted to join in too! We added the fish and the seaweed and then added in some little cheerio air bubbles and pebbles too – I think it’s always good to get some extra texture in a collage if you can.

She was really happy with her collage and made sure that she showed it to her brother when he got back after school – always a sign of success!
