How to make sea urchin crafts

What you need:

  • white cardboard
  • Water color
  • drag
  • black lining
  • brush
  • glue
  • magnetic tape (optional, if you want to make a magnetic hedgehog)

Let’s start!

Materials used

Instructions step by step

Draw a watercolor circle on white cardboard.

Step 1

Cut that circle out.

Step 2

Draw two cute eyes or use googly eyes. Make them a different size so your hedgehog friend looks silly.

Step 3

Keep your eyes on the circle.

Step 4

Draw a mouth with teeth using a black liner.

Unlike real sea urchins, which have five sharp teeth that can drill holes in rocks, our friendly sea urchins have regular teeth and do no harm.

Step 5

Cut out a bunch of spikes. Use white cardstock for this.

They don’t have to be the same size.

Step 6

Glue the spikes on the back of the body.

Step 7

Stick some magnetic tape to the back of the body and you can make a magnetic hedgehog to place it on the refrigerator.
