Summer Crafts 2015 Part 2 August 19, 2015

In this post: Ocean crafts and study. Plus a shell study.

Hello dear ones, this Summer we used our crafts to decorate the homeschool room for the beginning of the year. We have a sea theme. So we got a head start. Here are pictures and you can find the links on my Pinterest at the end.

Michael was given two big boxes of shells from my grandma and grandpa. He used them to decorate our homeschool room.

He also made a shell notebook.

He made necklaces as well and gave them to his buddies. Then Michael did a shell lapbook.

Michael did an ocean animal lapbook. He checked out books on ocean animals from the library.

I bought ocean paper and covered our school door and the area near the reading pool. I got the ocean creature cut outs from the Dollar Tree awhile back. I used bubble wrap to make the bubbles, and crepe paper for the seaweed.

Michael made these origami boats.

Leeland and I made this starfish with his feet.

The jelly fish are from Michael and Leeland’s hands.

IMG_2664 Michael made a crab, an oyster, and coral from egg cartons. I made coral from split pool noodles. IMG_2670

I drew the octopus and Michael splattered it with paint.

Michael made a puffer fish using a fork (not pictured).

We made socktopuses from socks.

Michael and I put together this ocean diorama.

We put foam stickers on the bottom of our flip flops and made these nifty prints. We hope to leave cool impressions in the sand when we go to the beach.

Visit Lily (203, 172, 8)

I wasn’t sure where to go when I got to the museum but I was able to call this airship for a tour. The link above will out you at the beginning of the tour though.

Jules Verne Museum

The first stop was under water in a glass building. There were signs that told Jules Verne’s biography.

There was an obvious nautical theme and it reminded me of the Jules Verne section at the Steam-punk museum I visited months ago.

If only this existed in rl (real life). It would be awesome to see ocean creatures from inside this building.

Different areas had information about his books like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Here’s Journey to the Center of the Earth.
