Step #1

Print out the S is for Sea Horse template on construction paper. We used two different colors; one for the S and one for the sea horse.

Step #2

Glue the S on a piece of white paper and glue the sea horse so that it slightly overlaps the S.

Step #3

Encourage your Lil’ to decorate the sea horse using markers. Be sure to give the sea horse a smile and an eye.

Step #4

Label the paper for your Lil’, S is for Sea Horse.
