Dolphins are marine mammals closely related to whales. Dolphins are beautiful creatures that are fun to watch. Compared to other animals, dolphins are believed to be very intelligent. Dolphins can be found in all of the oceans but the majority of dolphins prefer warm waters near and around the equator.
Children are very fascinated by dolphins and for a good reason, especially toddlers and preschoolers. Kids can make an ocean diorama and include a dolphin which can be easily be made from recycled materials such as a toilet paper roll, newspaper with paint.
To make the above dolphin mask, just print out the following dolphin mask template and then cut out and follow instructions on that page.
Here is your chance to make a cute little dolphin. Start off with an empty spool thread. Trace the circle part of the spool onto either gray felt, crafts foam, or paper. Do this twice. Cut out the circles and paste it on the front and back of the spool. Either paint the rest of the spool gray or wrap & paste felt / paper / crafts foam around it. Either paint or cut out 2 oval eyes ....a c-shaped snout, and the 2 white hill-shapes on the bottom of the face (as seen in picture #2 above). Cut out a gray upside letter 'V' shape from felt / foam / paper...and leave a rectangle at the bottom (see picture #3). You will use the rectangle to attach it to the spool. Also cut out the tail. Glue the tail & the fin to the dolphin, as in picture #4. Use a marker or paint to draw a smile on the dolphin's face. Also draw side fins on the dolphin, as seen in picture #4. Now your dolphin is finished.
