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:

Materials List

  1. newspaper (preferably the center insert or "magazine")
  2. scissors
  3. glue
  4. pencil (or crayon)
  5. paper
  1. Look for colored newsprint in your local newspaper magazines... ours had a surprising amount of color variety!

  2. 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.)

  3. While we were looking for colored print,

  4. 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.

  5. She cut out a fishing pole and string, and sharks and fish...

  6. ...sometimes drawing them with crayon, first. Everything was glued just so,

  7. and it's finished. What squirmy creatures are hiding under your boat?
