Under the Sea Art Projects

We are getting so excited for the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium to open in Draper, Utah that I thought it would be fun to do a roundup of my favorite under the sea art projects. My Mommy Style had the awesome opportunity to have a special tour of the aquarium a few weeks ago and I have to tell you I was blown away. It is beautiful and magical and fun. If you live in the area I suggest taking your kids, you won’t regret it.

Here is a video we made at the aquarium, thanks to our friends at ComV and their amazing skills. We’re also excited because this video is our first episode on our YouTube channel! We will be sharing a new video each week on Monday at 2:00, so be sure to subscribe to our channel and share it with your friends!

Now on to the art projects! If you visit an aquarium or are planning a trip to see one these would be fun art projects to do after you return. Click on the link above each project to find out how to make each one.

When we return home from fun outings we make a fun art project to remember the place we just went and then I add it to my kids’ journals with the date on the back so we can always remember. When we visited the aquarium last year we had to come home and make these envelope sharks.

Look how easy this paper plate fish would be! All you need is some glitter glue, a googly eye and a paper plate. So cute!

This is another variation of the paper plate fish, but made with colorful scales like the rainbow fish.

This paper plate turtle would be a fun way to use some rocks or pebbles from a rock collection. (Maybe my boys are the only ones that bring in special rocks from the backyard every day.)

I found a lot of different starfish art projects, but I loved how they added cheerios to these starfish to replicate the texture on them. (By the way, I cannot find the blog these belong to, if they are yours please let me know so I can link back to your page!)

Easy and adorable crab hand prints.

This shark flowerpot made me so happy. I love it! You could even use paper cups to make it cheaper and less likely to break.

My kids would go crazy for this jellyfish cup. So cute and easy.

So I know penguins don’t technically live under the sea, but the penguins are my kids very favorite thing at the aquarium. These bottle penguins are so cute.
