World Oceans Day celebrates our ocean on the 8th June this year, raising awareness for its protection. The ocean is a fundamental part of life on this planet; it’s our lifeblood. The plants depend on it, the animals depend on it, and we depend on it too. In fact, our oceans span across around three-quarters of the planet and generate half of the atmosphere’s oxygen. There’s no wonder that humankind is drawn to taking inspiration from such a beautifully significant part of the world. To join in with celebrations, we’ve created a top 10 list of ocean-themed craft products that you can incorporate into your crafting. Let’s dive right in!

If you’re a fan of a certain Hollywood movie, you’ll get the reference right away.
