Sharks? Turtles? An octopus? What resides in your under-the-sea? We used newspaper magazines (with different shades of print) to make a super fun ocean scene.
How We Did It
Look for colored newsprint in your local newspaper magazines... ours had a surprising amount of color variety!
The first thing she did was to color a few waves onto a blue piece of paper. Then she needed a boat. (Fold a paper in half, fold down the two corners from the folded side, and turn up the edges.)
While we were looking for colored print,
Madeleine found a zombie. Gasp! "Oh!! Can I use this zombie as my fisherman?!?" Great fun and uproariously funny, those zombies. Had we not found such a treasure, we were going to just draw and cut out a person's shape in the newsprint.
She cut out a fishing pole and string, and sharks and fish...
...sometimes drawing them with crayon, first.
Everything was glued just so,
and it's finished. What squirmy creatures are hiding under your boat?
