This is a great craft for little toddler hands. My two-year-old just loves using dot painters and he is a big fan of sea creatures, so this was perfect!

How We Did It

Paper Plate Sea Animals

Dot painters are great for little ones to use easily. (They make all kinds of fun ones now, too. We have a shimmery scented set that my son adores!)

Paper Plate Sea Animals

I started this craft out by cutting some sea animals from paper plates. (An older child could do this step. It's pretty easy and I usually cut a whole stack to keep on hand for future art fun.)

Paper Plate Sea Animals

When my two-year-old is itching to create, I pull out my sea animals and hand him the dot paints. It's the perfect pair.

They come out pretty cute. Some even get faces!

I work with the elderly, I think this is going to be great to do with them.
