Rainbow Seahorses - inspired by Eric Carle

Love the colour in Eric Carle's books and there are endless possibilities for projects by using them for inspiration! This project came about after looking at his book, 'Mister Seahorse'. I'm currently doing it with a junior ESL class (due to a lack of language skills, the students are using a seahorse template - with other classes, I would get the students to draw their own!)

 *Tip: paint over the torn tissue paper with a layer of watered down PVA glue - this will ensure the paper doesn't come off once it has dried and it gives it a nice 'shiney' look.

Now onto the ocean background.......we used wax crayons to add lots of reeds and sea grass and some of the fish that were in the 'Mister Seahorse' book. We then painted on the background with blue ink. Next lesson: adding our decorated seahorses!


  1. Where did you get the seahorse template from?

  2. The Kovalam beach offers a plenty of and diverse options like swimming, sunbathing, ayurveda, herbal body massaging, cruising, cultural programs, sunset watching, etc. Surly spending few days on Kovalam beach will be a unique and pleasant experience that will last forever.
