Ocean Theme Transient Art Activity is an opportunity for children to explore, manipulate and create freely their ideas using an empty frame to and an assortment of ocean theme loose parts such as glass gems and ocean figurines.

The empty picture frame provides as a canvas, an area for children to create, manipulate and explore the objects provided. The best part about transient art activities is that the artwork is evolving and developing or you can put all the items away and start again with a new idea.

What you will need?

Invitation to play and create - ocean theme transient art activity for kids

You will need an empty frame, plain table runner or placemat, (to place underneath the frame), blue, white and green glass gems, ocean theme figurines and any other objects that is ocean theme related. We also added some coloured shells which we found cheap in an art and craft store. Sea shells or beach sand would also be a great addition to this activity.

If you do not have an empty frame to use as a canvas, a plain coloured table runner or placemat also make a great canvas for creating transient art.
