Sea anemones are the flowers of the sea. They are related to sea jellies, corals and many other cousins that have polyps with stinging cells. Anemones may live alone or in colonies. They have many colours. They feed by extending their tentacles into the water hoping to catch tiny animals passing by.
Many anemones in cooler southern (or northern) waters are harmless to people although when touched they feel sticky and cling to your finger.
The anemones that were made are a stylised version using a round plastic bowl and the bottoms of PET drink bottles. You will see these on the next pages
Round plastic soup/cereal/disposable bowl (alternatively you can use a paper bowl)
Plastic PET drink bottles
Parchment paper (used in the kitchen for baking)
Iron & surface suitable to iron on
Pencils or pens
An adult should use the iron
Jack emailed to KISS Art his alternative anemone. After finishing with a paper disposable cup he used a pair of scissors to make his anemone. He cut down the sides of the cup to make tentacles.
Thanks Jack, we do like your anemone and it would look great in an art coral reef.
Do you have a great art idea to add to a coral reef? Send in your example so we can post it.
