Seaweed comes in lots of interesting shapes and textures. You can preserve them by making seaweed art. It's easy to make seaweed prints with this easy beach craft for kids.

What You'll Need:

  • Fresh seaweed (available at fish supply stores)
  • Poster board
  • Craft glue
  • Decorations

How to Make Seaweed Art:

Step 1: Lay fresh seaweed on a piece of poster board. Arrange it in a nice design, then let the seaweed dry. Seaweed contains a glue-like substance that will cause it to stick to the poster board.

Step 2: When the seaweed is dry, check to make sure it's all stuck to the poster board. If there are loose bits of seaweed, just use a little glue to stick them down.

Step 3: If you like, you can paint your creation or decorate it with other things you find at a beach -- like shells or pebbles.
