Connor and Addie's Paper Bowl Crab Creatures!
Paper Starfish
Trace a starfish pattern onto brown paper or cardstock
Cut the starfish out
Glue the starfish to blue cardstock
Glue on googly eyes
Draw a mouth
Decorate with ocean/sea life stickers
 Here is a similar project we did with Starfish in June of 2009! 
 Awe . . . Connor and Lauren were so little!!!
 I found the main idea for this project on the website I printed the starfish template off of the site and traced it onto card stock/tag board. Connor and Lauren then chose a paint color and painted their starfish. (Connor of course chose blue as his color, and Lauren chose purple). After, they had painted the starfish, we went outside to our sandbox and Connor and Lauren sprinkled (dumped!) sand onto their starfish. We let the project dry. Finally, they glued their starfish onto a brown piece of card stock and decorated the card stock with ocean theme stickers! (Blue card stock or any color would look good too).
Paper Bowl Jellyfish
Paint a paper bowl - any color
Let dry - glue on googly eyes
Tape pieces of ribbon to the inside of the bowl, so the string dangles down from the bowl
Handprint Crab
Cut a "beach" from brown or tan construction paper and glue it to the bottom of blue construction paper
Paint both hands red and press onto the construction paper with thumbs pointing up
Glue a googly eye onto each thumb
Press a cotton ball into white paint and press onto the blue paper to make clouds
Big Teeth Sharks - Sort of!!
This project was a flop. First, I ran out of blue construction paper, then my shark cutting skills were not that great.  They don't really look like sharks, but more of monsters with really large mouths.  Oh well! :)
Cut triangles all around a paper plate
Fold the paper plate in half
cut out a shark shape from construction paper - preferably blue
Glue the mouth to the shark and glue on googly eyes
