Ten Swimming Seahorses (*Starfish)
by Kathryn Roach
Let's count 10 seahorses* swimming by
All different colors, my, oh my!
The first is red
the next light blue
Here is orange
And purple too.
I see one that's green
We're not done
I see a white one;
This is fun!
Now, yellow, then blue
pink is last
10 Seahorses* swimming fast!
*Update* This could also be done with a laminated file folder cutout and colored paper.**
Here's the craft we did. I used a strip of yellow crepe paper sandwiched between 2 seahorse shapes. The children spongepainted the seahorse shapes with a small sponge and blue paint and added a stick-on eye. They were pretty pleased with these! I had some teen volunteers help cut out the shapes.
Of course, I couldn't leave the starfish shapes alone! Notice the shiny glitter? LOL!
Happy swimmy summertime to come!!
