  1. Draw your seahorse then flip the paper over and add some colour! Set it aside and let it dry.
  2. Grab a second piece of paper and paint it like the ocean. Set it aside and let it dry. 
  3. Now take the newspaper and rip it up into long strips. 
  4. Paint these strips on both sides green like seaweed. Set them aside to dry.
  5. Take your seahorse paper and cut along your drawn seahorse outline. 
  6. Now it is time to stick it all together! Take your painted blue piece of paper, twist the green seaweed and twist it and then secure it with glue on either end. Repeat this with as many seaweed strips as you would like. 
  7. Lastly stick your colourful seahorse in the middle of the artwork!
