Last month, I shared with you all a fun DIY project that’s perfect for traveling with kids this summer (or for restaurants, church, and any other time that you need your kiddos to be occupied and quiet). If you have no idea what I’m talking about, read more here.
As the same time I made the original set, I also started working on an ocean themed set, and I made the mistake of showing the partially finished pieces to Little Man. Every time he played with the felt board–which he has loved–he would ask me when the “fishy ones” were going to be done. Well, I finally completed it, and I’m sharing the templates with you today!
This set includes all your favorite friendly sea creatures: fish, sea stars, jellyfish, an octopus, and the “humongous whale” (Does anyone else get the “slippery fish” song stuck in their head way too often?) along with a treasure chest and some rocks, seaweed, and coral to round out your ocean floor.
Of the three sets I’ve made for our travel board, this one is definitely my kids’ favorite. And, to be honest, it’s mine, too! There is something inviting about that octopus and his friends. We took this on our trip to Florida and Little Man enjoyed playing with it on the plane, especially since we were going to visit the ocean and see some fun sea creatures!
If you are interested in making your own “Under the Sea” play set, simply click on the picture or link below and print. Cut the pieces out of your choice of felt colors, and play away!
