Mermaids` Makings

Octonaut Land

Welcome to  Octonaut Land.

It was so much fun to put together the ocean using fabric, blue egg carton and bubble wrap. The coral reef is made out of kitchen tube and loo rolls.. painted and decorated with pom poms and buttons. We attached some pipe cleaner coral and peg fish there as well.

As there are hundreds of different fish in the ocean I made a few to play with. I´m planning to hang them on the coral reef to make it feel that they are really swimming. The ribbon fish idea is from here and the paper fish one from here. Have a look- they both are reaally neat!

These are cheeky giant octopuses who borrowed hats from our snowmen who melted sitting in front of  the radiator…

And look at these cute sea creatures. Lil Mermaid got a wonderful sealife set for Christmas and we can make two lots of creatures out of it. I am covering them in Mod Podge to give the shiny look and make them last longer.

Our under the sea picture came to good use as well, for a background!

And in the sparkling pirate treasure chest we keep all our important Octogoodies.

Well, come over and play!
