Snorkeling is one of the best ways to get up close and personal with the ocean. Can’t make it to the surf? This fun craft puts your child in the mask (and snorkel!) while giving them practice writing their name. Let’s dive in!
What you need:
- paper + access to a printer (don’t have one? we like this model)
- our snorkel mask template
- watercolor paint
- watercolor paper
- white circle stickers
- plastic wrap (or half of a laminating pocket sheet)
- bendy straw
What to do:
Start by printing a large photo of your child like the one depicted above. (Print in black and white if the photo is in color.)
Cut out just their face and shoulders. Set aside.
Using a piece of water color paper, have your child paint waves over the whole sheet.
Once the paint dries, glue their picture onto the waves.
Print our mask template onto colorful cardstock and cut it out. Glue or tape a piece of plastic wrap (or half of a laminating pocket sheet) onto the back to create a mask, then glue the whole thing onto your child’s face. Add a bendy straw for the snorkel!
Using circle stickers, create bubbles where your child can write the letters of their name.
