It has been a rough week in our home. I had gall bladder surgery this week & have been sore & very tired. After several days of lying around on the couch, I am just plain bored. I mustered up just enough energy today to make a quick craft. Mai wanted to make seahorses. Mommy wanted to make them out of cupcake liners, but Mai decided she rather draw hers.
She did not want to partake in today’s craft with mommy, but still we worked side by side. She drew a beautiful picture, while I made the seahorse craft. Sometimes she likes to just watch & it helps give her ideas for future projects of her own.
This was luckily a quick & easy craft that only took me a few minutes & then I was back on the couch resting.
All you will need for this craft is mini cupcake liners, glue & googly eyes.
You will need 4 mini cupcake liners for each seahorse.
Fold & glue a cupcake liner in half for the body.
Fold & glue another liner & trim the ridged part away from the inside of the liner. This liner will be used to form the tail.
Use the leftover inside piece to form the curl of the tail.
Fold another in half & trim to form a seahorse head.
Fold a liner into half twice to form the fin & glue all pieces in place as shown.
Add a googly eye to finish him off. Use crayons or markers to add water waves or bubbles.
