If you love crafts using paper plates and you adore cute sea animals, this project is for you! The Cuddly California Sea Lion is an easy paper craft for kids inspired by one of our favorite marine mammals. This is a great craft for toddlers and preschoolers to do with adult guidance. The happy sea lion will look great no matter how advanced your little crafter is. Display this friendly fella alone on the fridge or make a menagerie of paper plate animals to keep him company. Either way, he's always smiling!

What a clever and simple idea! I knew this was a sea lion at first glance, yet such a simple pattern! If you wanted to take it a bit further, you could add some fringe made from a painted brown paper bag and give this little fellow some texture and fur! Make a beach ball out of construction paper or paint one, for this guy to balance on his nose! So fun and clever!
