Everyone loves the romance of mermaids. Beautiful illusive creatures, are they real or imaginary? Children find mythical creatures fascinating and they are such a wonderful source of creativity! I’d Like To Be A Mermaid is a simple little mermaid song which is perfect for accompanying our Twirling Mermaid Craft.
Mermaid Song : I’d Like to be a Mermaid
I’d like to be a mermaid,
As pretty as can be,
Sitting on a rock,
In the middle of the sea.
Combing out my hair,
In the golden sun,
And swishing my fine tail,
Oh wouldn’t it be fun!
(sing to the tune of I had A little Nut Tree)
Twirling Mermaid Craft
This twirling mermaid craft is so easy and quick to do and offers kids a great opportunity for open ended creativity. Simply print off our free printable mermaid template, and allow the children to decorate it as they wish! We did ours with tissue paper and sequins with yellow ribbon for her hair – but anything goes! See her twirl in the little video below.
The beach is such a wonderful playground for kids! There’s always something fascinating to find and plenty of other children to make friends with.
I’ve always felt very lucky to live by the sea and when my kids were small we went to the beach most days after school. The rock pools kept them busy for hours and my daughters loved collecting pretty stones and shells and creating pictures in the sand.
