Mythological Sea Creature Crafts
Mermaids are mythological creatures that have fascinated man for centuries. (Hemera Technologies/ Images)

For thousands of years, man has sailed the seas and created amazing tales of the creatures that originate from them. Some of the creatures that were thought to be mythical have actually been discovered, such as the giant sea squid. Others, so far, only have a place in human imagination. Mythological sea creatures can inspire crafts that are intriguing for adults and children alike.

A Sea Serpent Craft

Reports of sea serpents and lake monsters have been given from all over the world, but plausible evidence of a living sea serpent has yet to be substantiated. A sea serpent craft can be created by gluing ten plastic green milk carton caps to a piece of construction paper. Plastic googly eyes are glued onto the first milk carton cap, and a red felt tongue is added. The creature's watery habitat is drawn in with markers or crayons.

Mermaid Shadowbox

According to popular legend, mermaids are creatures that resemble fish from the waist down and humans from the waist up. Mermaid legends are found all over the globe from Egypt to Ireland. A simple mermaid shadow box can be created with a shoebox. Glue a piece of blue construction paper to the back of the shoebox, using markers or crayons to colour an ocean theme. Cut out a mermaid shape from felt or construction paper and colour as desired. Glue to ocean background. Embellish with craft jewels, seashells, stickers, and other small trinkets. Staple or tape a ribbon loop to the back of the shadow box so it can be hung on a wall.
