Egg Box Oceans

Here are four activity ideas to inspire you to get closer to the water this summer. 

Craft - Origami fish

Create underwater creatures using origami! All you need is several sheets of paper and the know-how. Think about containing the creatures in their very own egg carton ocean.

Outdoor - Water activities

There are a variety of water based activities that are easy to organise and do not require permits. Activities like rock pooling and pond dipping will get you out and about exploring nature.      


Indoor – Kayak practice

Bring the kayaking experience indoors and practice your strokes on a rainy day. This tutorial shares rowing techniques to help you prepare for your next adventure.


Food – Jelly aquarium

Stir up an ocean of jelly using this sea world inspired dessert. Submerge lots of gummy sweets - think sharks, fish and dolly mix - into the unset mixture. Your young people will love uncovering the surprises found at the bottom of their jelly sea.
