Paper Plate Sea Animals

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!

Materials you'll need

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    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!)

  • Step 2

    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.)

  • Step 3

    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.
