A decorative activity for young children to do, making a seahorse out of a paper plate.

The indents on the edge of the paper plate make an effective seahorse dorsal fin shape which can be decorated with colour pens, crayons, glitter or stickers.

Method
The hardest part is hand drawing the shape of a seahorse onto the plate, with the back fin using the plate edge. This will require an adult's skills, and may require a few attempts before getting right!
