Ocean Theme Mural

To complete it, requires a lot of colouring in so this mural is a great family or class project. Even our toddler doodled all over ours. Notice, our orange sky - we decided to make a sunset sky after "someone" coloured it the wrong colour!
The printable pages, as well as clipart cut-outs of various ocean creatures can all be downloaded and printed from the following site free of charge.

Tips for Creating the Ocean Theme Mural
1. Begin by laying out the pages in the correct order - they are numbered 1A, 1B, 1C, 2A, 2B, 2C etc.
2. Colour in the sheets and try to keep colours continuous!
3. When you cut out the sheets, leave a white border on two sides that can be overlapped underneath the adjoining pages. This will make it easier to join them up.
4. Be creative - use textured paper to create additional sea-weed, add ocean theme stickers, real sea-shells, sand, cut outs from ocean theme gift wrap, other ocean art your kids have created or use the clipart cut outs from the Learning Page website.
