Make ocean scenes with simple cardboard stencils.
What You Need
- Thin cardboard (An old file folder works well.)
- Tempera paint
- Ocean animal stencils pattern
What You Do
- Download and Print the Pattern
Download and print the ocean animal stencils pattern.
- Cut Out Stencils
Cut out the four squares on the pattern. Tape each square to a piece of cardboard. Cut along the dots until you reach the dashed line. Then cut along the dashed line to make your stencils. Tape the area where you cut the dotted line so your stencil has a solid outline.
- Paint With Your Stencils
Place the stencils on a piece of blank paper. Show your child how to dip the sponge in paint and use it to dab the inside of the stencil.
