Here’s a fun activity for your kids, that still has some educational value. Build a coral reef in their bedroom. After reading a brief description of the animals that live on the reef, choose the ones that you would like for your own personal reef, color them in, cut them out and glue them onto the wall. You can make some of the corals out their hand prints after tracing them onto construction paper. This fun project can keep the kids busy for hours.
Where do you start? Download the Build Your Own Coral Reef Kit from Teachers Pay Teachers or Teachers Notebook, cover the wall with blue butcher paper, print out the reef animals you like best, color, cut an glue.
And you have just built your own coral reef!
