Whales are very impressive creatures, but I can’t think of a more impressive one than the blue whale. It’s the largest animal ever known to have existed on earth. That in and of itself is pretty awesome! In the past, we have made a cartoon whale, a humpback whale, a beluga whale, and an orca. You can find more of our fun sea creature crafts in our Animal Section!
When I designed this craft, I decided to cut the whale in half and make each piece larger so that it would be bigger when glued together. I think Lore’s whale came out great! A big thanks goes out to Helen for suggesting this fun animal. I always appreciate when people throw out ideas… sometimes I need some inspiration! You can find our suggestion form here!
