Seahorses are fascinating creatures that can capture the imagination of both children and adults alike. Learning about these unique animals can be both fun and educational for elementary school-aged children. One way to engage children in the world of seahorses is through a colouring and mapping activity. In this activity, children will colour seahorses and mark where they can be found on a world map.

This activity provides a hands-on way for children to learn about the habitat and range of these creatures and their unique physical characteristics and behaviours.
