Ocean Animal Coffee Filter Suncatcher Craft for Kids + free template: We used coffee filters and cut out animal silhouettes like a dolphin, shark, whale, and fish to make colorful suncatchers perfect for summer or ocean activities with the kids.
Summer is here and what's more fun than visiting the beach to enjoy some fresh air, sun, water and sand?! Even if you don't make it to the beach, what's so great about these crafts is that you don't have to actually go to the beach to make them. From sand handprint keepsakes to beach scene pudding cups here are The 11 Best Beach Crafts for Kids. They're sure to keep them busy all summer long!
Such simple items can be transformed into a cool activity that blends both science and art. If you have an empty water bottle, water, vegetable oil and food coloring, you can make this fascinating kid's activity!
