Ocean Coral Blow Painting

Is a coral a plant or animal? 🤔

Unlike plants, corals do not make their own food. Corals are in fact, animals. The branch or mound that we often call “a coral” is actually made up of thousands of tiny animals called polyps!

Create your ocean corals in your favourite colours through blow painting. It's an excellent opportunity to observe how the colours merge to form new colours and also train your lungs!

Science fun

This craft activity is pretty self-explanatory. Add in some science fun by varying the amount of water used to create the coral and observe how it affects the colour intensity of your coral!

You can also vary the amount of energy used to blow through the straw. Try to create the tallest coral in one breath!

We're particularly delighted when parents continue to immerse children in Squizzel Box themes after trying out all activities! Send in your extension activities related to our themes and get featured! This activity is an extension to the Underwater World theme.
