Play Dough Coral Reef

Playdough coral reef
For our last ocean project, we made play dough coral reefs. These were simple to make and fun. We just took some play dough, and decorated it with pasta to look like coral. The tri-color rotini looked the most like coral.

The water is a gallon zipper bag filled with cheap, blue shampoo. We made them to trace our letters, but the girls were not really interested, so we repurposed them as a mini-ocean and they worked great. Ella used her new Coral Reef and Baby Sea Life Toob animals to play in the water. We also used our mini fish erasers.
