Discover how to create a whale jumping out of water with this fun paper plate craft!
This ocean-themed craft is super easy to make and can keep kids entertained for hours. Kids will attach the whale to a craft stick and slip it through a slit on the backside of a paper plate, which is decorated to look like the ocean. They then move the craft stick, making the whale appear as if it's jumping in the waves.
This cute paper plate craft is ideal for kids 6 years and older with adult supervision. It takes about 25 minutes to complete.
For this arts and crafts project, you will need glue, scissors, a craft stick, black and blue paint, paint brushes, a pencil, a paper plate, light and dark blue paper and watercolor paper. You will also need the whale template.
