Sand Collage Craft
Use this sand collage craft combined with a handprint tracing and cutting activity to create an underwater picture as part of a preschool ocean theme.
Sand Collage Craft Activity
You will need
1 piece card per child
(stick glue will work, but not as well)
colured paper or magazines to tear or cut
1. Spread wood glue along the bottom of the card, where you want the sand of the sea bed to lie.
2. Sprinkle sand onto the glue thickly and set it aside to dry for a few hours.
3. Gently shake off the extra sand once the glue has dried.
4. Cut or tear strips of coloured paper to make a sea weed or coral 'forest'. Glue on the sea-weed strips.
5. As an extra touch, cut out a coloured handprint and make a fish.
Extension To Sand Collage Craft
Explain to your children how creatures in the ocean depend on each other for survival.
A good example is the mutually symbiotic relationship between clown fish, like Nemo and sea anemones.
The tentacles of the sea anemones provide shelter and protection from predators to the clown fish.
In return the clown fish feeds on small invertebrates which could possibly harm the anemone. Also, fecal matter from the clown fish provide nutrients to the sea anemone.
By living together, both creatures benefit.
