Swimming Mermaids Papercraft
Go under the sea with this swimming mermaids craft, they really flap their fins! How cool! Some simple folding brings these mermaids to life, make them swim, sing and dance on the ocean floor. How fun are these retro mermaids with their sea and coral color palettes?! Best part is that they can actually flap their fins, so they're kinda like paper toys too! Go to hellowonderful.co to see an awesome video tutorial of these little fish girls! And be sure to download this printable below for a fun sea adventure!
I've created 4 different versions of this mermaid, three are already colored and one is black and white for you to color yourself! It would be great to add your own pizzazz to these mermaids like glitter or gems! Just remember to be creative and have fun!
Thanks again to the super awesome hellowonderful.co for featuring this craft on her website, she has as much fun as I do making these crafts and videos! They always come out amazing!
