Ocean Theme Mural

Create a colourful ocean theme mural using free printable pages and cut outs.

We created this colourful under-the-ocean mural to round off our ocean studies. It consists of 15 printable pages stuck together in 3 layers, with an option to repeat the pattern and make it longer.

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!

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.

If you do this ocean theme mural, please share a photo to add to this page. It would be great to inspire others with a variety of pictures of this completed project! Use the form below.

Have A Good Preschool Idea to Share?

Perhaps you have an activity to develop certain preschool skills, or to encourage art or music appreciation, concentration or listening skills.

Whatever the category, share your idea here along with a good, clear photo, to show it, if you can.

NOTE: Submissions that are too short, (less than about 10 sentences) may not be published, so give a good explanation. It can rather be edited and shortened if it is too long! 250 words, or more, is the ideal length!
