Snorkel Diver Kids Summer Printable
Over the years, the seasons have seemed to kind of change. It used to be that kids could be outside playing in the sun, at the playground, and in the pool all summer long.
However, now it seems the weather is still cool and wet when school lets out, so we have to find more things to do inside. One way we have curved this summer boredom is to do fun paper crafts like this fun Snorkel Diver kids summer printable.
Summer Craft Printable Supplies
Supplies for Watercolor Background:

- Watercolor Paint
- Paint Brush
Instructions for Snorkel Diver Craft Printable
Download and print out the snorkeling kid template (found at the bottom of this page). Cut out and set aside.
Glue the pieces together using a glue stick or white school glue.
Cut small bits of white paper and add to the edges to create “shine” and give it more life. See the pieces on the fins?
Your snorkel diver is done unless you would like to create a watercolor background. You could also glue this snorkel diver to construction paper.
Instructions for Watercolor Background:
- Prepare a surface with newspaper or a vinyl tablecloth for easy cleanup.
- Set up watercolor paints in shades of blue that you’d like to use. Mix in some green and yellow for even more color.
- Coat your paper in water until it’s damp but not soaked. Use a paintbrush for this step.
- Add watercolor paint and cover the paper. Mix in some various shades of blue until you’re happy with how it looks.
5. Sprinkle a few pinches of salt across the wet paint. It’s important that you do this while the paint is wet, otherwise, it will not work. The salt will create the paint to separate and cause an explosive looking effect.
6. Allow the paper to dry completely. This will take a while since it was so wet.
7. Once dry, glue the bubbles and snorkel diver onto the paper.
8. Your fun paper craft is now complete.
Other Crafts To Do This Summer
Crafts are an easy way to entertain the kids while keeping them off the electronics. I don’t know about you, but if I hear one more thing about Fortnite, I might scream. Although some electronic time is fine, kids shouldn’t be on it all the time. In addition to this craft, here are some other craft ideas you can do instead of listening to your kid’s play games on their electronics:
- 101 Ocean Crafts for Preschool
- DIY Strawberry Craft for Kids
- Boat Craft Using Popsicle Sticks
- Watermelon Craft Ideas for Kids
If you have older kids that may not be into these kinds of crafts, you can always have them work with the younger kids to do the crafts. Give them the responsibility of teaching and instructing.
