Kid's craft project: underwater habitat in a box

Underwater habitat in a box. Great kids craft project, the secret was to do a bit at a time and assemble at the end.

It even involved a trip to the beach to collect sand and shells. The jellyfish are made from plastic egg cartons and strips of bubble wrap.

Note from the artist:

How to make a Habitat Box

First choose a habitat you want to make in your box. Round up things that you can use e.g. scrap paper and card, plastic egg boxes, das or clay and toy animals. You may also need  paint, glue and scissors. Now you are ready to make your habitat box! To make a background you could cover the back with paper or paint it.

Ideas for different boxes

For a forest or a jungle habitat box, you can glue some toy animals to the bottom of the box or make animals out of das or clay. 

If you are making a underground habitat you could collect soil, dried leaves and twigs to glue on to make a special background.

A desert or a beach habitat could have real sand and shells that could be collected from any beach.

  1. The whole party comes to an R1 in 2003. The rear wheel of a XJR1300. Together with the rear of a TRX and an adjustment to the suspension shock absorber is improved geometry pieces. scaricare pdf
