Make a Coral Reef

Let’s build an underwater coral reef! Green seaweed, purple anemones, sea shells, octopus… limit to the size and shape of this amazing living biome.


8 count modeling clay package (we like Crayola)

Large piece of cardboard

Blue paint



  1. Paint the cardboard BLUE. This is your ocean backdrop. 

  2. Once it dries, paint a brown little patch in the middle of it. This is your sand, and where your coral reef will live.

  3. Now, using the image (or your imagination! Or a science book! Or an aquarium!) as a guide, craft little versions of coral reef life. Green seaweed. Purple anemones. Pink seashells, Yellow starfish. Let dry.
