Under The Sea Craft Theme – Crafts & Activities For Kids

Under the Sea is a popular theme for kids, whether you are planning for an afterschool program, craft event, birthday party, summer camp, or recreational program. We’ve shared our favorite themed crafts and activities, with fun sea characters so kids can have an under the sea adventure. You can even make these themed for the movie Finding Nemo or Finding Dory.

Make a 3D fishbowl! Children can learn about different fish and sea creatures while decorating their fishbowl. Fluorescent paint looks really cool on the fish, and you can use oil pastels for the bowl. This is a great craft for all ages, and comes in a pack of 36.

Coral Reef Craft Kit

Make the coral reef swim to life! This kit of 12 comes with dyed paper, fish and reef cutouts, silver circles and instructions. Kids will love being creative with the different coral pieces. One teacher had a great idea to turn it into a mobile with the coral hanging from ribbons! Add wiggly eyes to the fish for a fun 3D effect.

Stain a Frame Ocean Friends

These beautiful underwater scenes come as a 12 pack, with 3 of each design. Use glass stain to bring out the colorful sea life and backgrounds. Then hang them up to admire! Our favorite is the clownfish, like Marlin and Nemo in the movie Finding Dory. There are also sea turtles like Crush and Squirt!

Ceramic Fish Banks

What better place for kids to save up money than in a fish bank? Our Ceramic Fish Bank Craft Kit (left fish) comes with all of the materials you need, including paint and brushes. The silly looking fish on the right is from our Color-Me™ line. These fish come unglazed so they can be decorated with paint, markers, crayons and more. Have kids create a fish like Dory with blue, yellow and black!

Tropical Fish Magnets

Kids can use fabric markers (included) to decorate their own velvet sea life tote. Then add fun sequins and glitter glue to make it stand out! The little fish look like Nemo, and the starfish are like the one Dory meets in the fish tank in Finding Dory.

Sea Life Sequin Pictures

We love this pack of sequin pictures! The pack comes with an octopus, dolphin, and a fish. This is a simple craft activity for young kids – just add self-sticking foam circles on the marked areas, add sequins and gems, then pull out the back holder to make it stand up. Above are photos from Burns Latino Studies Academy using the craft pack to learn about animals that live in the ocean.
