Learning By Topic KS1: Mermaids and Art / Design and Technology

Design and make a mermaid tiara using seashells.

Draw and paint a mermaid and then add extra detail, for example, sand and shells for the ocean floor, buttons or sequins for the mermaid’s scales etc.Top Tip: You might like to get a photo of yourself and cut your face out to paste onto your art as the mermaids face!

Make your own mermaid tail! Using cardboard, cutout the shape of the fin, then decorate with paint, sequins, glitter-whatever you would like! Next get a sock a few sizes too large and insert both feet into it. Pull the sock up your legs as high as it will stretch. Finally, attach your beautifully decorated fin to the end of the sock.
