The background was created by using a white glue wash with different shades of ripped blue, green and white tissue paper overlapping each other. Then the children painted waves across this and splashed on bubbles and then finished off with glitter.
Over the weeks the children filled the sea with images of fish that they created themselves and stuck on. The artwork filled an entire wall.

The children got the taste for exploring new countries so we moved on to a variety of countries each with a connection to the children in the group in one way or another... when we "travelled" to Africa we decided to once again re-use the blue background
