This is a great activity to work on your child's fine motor skills & gives them a great little keepsake to display.

You will need:

  • Cereal box or similar
  • Paper
  • Items to colour (pencils, crayons, paint)
  • String or thread
  • Any other decorations such as pebbles, googly eyes etc
  • Sticky tape and scissors

Cut a rectangle out of the front of your box, leaving a frame around the edge. Cover the box in the paper and decorate as your little ones likes.
Paint or colour inside the box blue to look like the sea and decorate with your pebbles etc. 
Next, draw (or print out) some fish outlines for them to colour in, and being careful with scissors, cut these out and stick to the top of the inside of the box with sticky tape.
Add any other decorative touches our their mind imagines such as seaweed and display for all to admire.
