RBCM@Home (Kids) Create an Underwater Forest

Create an Underwater Forest with the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea

British Columbia's kelp forests are teeming with life — sea stars, urchins, rockfish and so much more.

For this session of RBCM@Home (Kids), join Aneka from the Shaw Centre for the Salish Sea as she introduces us to some of her favourite kelp forest residents while guiding us through the creation of our own mini habitat.

Supplies needed:

  • Drawing materials (coloured pencils, markers, etc.)
  • Template (if you can't print the template that's ok. Just have a blank piece of paper you can draw on).
  • Glue
  • Scissors

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is hosted by Chris O'Connor.

RBCM @ Home (Kids) is like a museum playdate online. Visit with members of the museum staff who are working from home, along with families from across BC, as we make and learn together. Each session will have some kind of making activity, so get your paper and pencil crayons ready. RBCM @ Home(Kids) takes place on Wednesdays at 11 am, visit our calendar for topics, presenters and a list of materials so you can join in with hands-on activities at home.

For adults and youth, check out RBCM @ Home. This program takes place on Tuesdays at 12pm and highlights members of the curatorial and collections staff who are working from home during the pandemic and discover how they do their work, how their work is reflected in their homes and what they're working on now.
