Easy to Make Under the Sea Crafts for Kids
Starfish Crafts: Ocean crafts for kids are a good way of introducing new creatures and new texture to your children and allow them to create a controlled mess at the same time, and these cute felt starfish crafts do exactly that! Here is how to proceed with these simple under the sea crafts.
What you will need: Orange felt (or other colours), black and orange sewing thread, 2 black seed beads, stuffing, pencil, pins, needles, scissors, and a starfish template
Instructions: The first step in making these under the sea crafts for children is to cut out starfish shapes from the orange felt using the starfish template. Cut out two shapes. You then sew the black seed beads on one of the starfish shapes to make the eyes of these ocean crafts for kids. Sew these using the black thread. The beads should be sewed flat to look like an O and use about three to four stitches. Alternatively you can also use some googly eyes and just glue them on.
To make the smile of these starfish crafts sew using double thickness of the black thread. Use running stitches to make the smile. Your under the sea crafts are now almost complete!
To complete your under the sea crafts for kids, place both pieces together. Use the orange thread to sew around the edges. Use whip stitches to do this. The points of these starfish crafts for kids can be a bit difficult to stuff. You will, therefore, have to sew and stuff one by one while sewing around the edges. Sew up the last gap of your sea crafts for kids and complete your stitching at the back. Finally your colourful felt starfish crafts are now ready to go!
