The under-the-sea theme has been a constant favorite for kids' celebrations, costumes, room decor, and even learning activities! And of course, no under-the-sea theme would be complete without mermaids! These pretty mermaids seem to be the center of attraction in this theme, and little kids are so fascinated with them! So, we made a new FREE printable featuring these pretty mermaids - the Print & Go Mermaid Craft Pack!
My Pre-K Box: The ultimate subscription box for preschoolers!
My Pre-K Box is an educational subscription box for preschoolers filled with different learning activities for math and literacy skills! Each box is based on a different theme and is focused on play-based learning. Your kids will love exploring new activities each month while practicing kindergarten readiness skills!
Mermaids are mythical creatures, which are half-human and half-fish. But their strange appearance doesn’t seem to scare kids - instead, kids (and even adults) find them fascinating! And if your little one loves mermaid stuff, check out this FREE mermaid craft pack from My Pre-K Box! This free printable will make it easier for you and your little one to create lovely mermaids while developing important Kindergarten skills.
Time for some freebies!
Leprechauns, like mermaids, are mythical creatures too! They are often featured on St. Patrick's day, and if you want a cute leprechaun craft for your candies and treats, we got the right freebie for you!

What you'll get when you download the Print & Go Mermaid Craft Pack:
Procedure in making your own Mermaid Craft:
Step 1 Download the Print & Go Mermaid Craft Pack from My Pre-K Box. You can choose from the different colored versions, or print the black and white copy so your child can color the mermaid herself. Print it in cardstock to make it sturdy, then cut out the parts of the mermaid.
Step 2 Attach the upper body from the tail using glue. Then, attach the shells to the chest of the mermaid. Decorate the mermaid's tail with some flowers too!
Step 3 Choose a color for your mermaid's hair. On colored paper, trace both of your child's hands with a pencil. Then cut them out using scissors.
Step 4 Attach one of the cutout handprints to the back of the mermaid’s head, with the fingers pointing slightly at the right side. Then carefully roll the fingers inward one by one to turn them into cute curls!
Let’s stop for another freebie!
Like the pretty mermaids we are making right now, this movable monster is such a cutie - and not scary at all! If you want another fun craft featuring silly creatures, check out this FREE Build a Monster Craft here, or download it now for FREE!
Step 5 Get the other cutout handprint and paste it on the left side. Do the same to complete the mermaid’s curly hair! You can also let your little one be creative and style the mermaid’s hair on her own.
Step 6 Get the cutout crown and flowers. Attach the crown to the mermaid's forehead, and you can put a flower on the side. Now your mermaid is almost complete! Just one last step and you're almost ready to have some under-the-sea fun!
Step 7 Draw the mermaid's lovely face! And that's it! Your little mermaid is ready!
Make a lot of adorable mermaids with the free Mermaid Craft Pack! You can share it with your siblings, cousins, and friends! Or bring them on playdates for some under-the-sea adventure!
