Beat the Heat: Make an Aquarium

Hi everyone, and welcome to the next installment of Beat the Heat. Today we're going to bring the ocean to the bedrooms by creating an aquarium!

Sorry for the poor photo quality - the weather has been bad all day.

First, draw the bottom of the tank. Color it to resemble gravel. 

Next, draw what you want in the tank. I put in colorful fish, seaweed, and a treasure chest. Some more ideas for your tank - a hermit crab, starfish, seashells. 

 Cut a piece of tape and fold it to fit the tank bottom.

Tape the tank contents to the wall, and tape it to the bottom of the tank.

Put it on your shelf and pretend you're looking into the ocean. It might not be the real thing, but it's close enough.

What's your favorite way to beat the heat?


  1. This is ADORABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I might just try it. Oh! Sorry that I haven't been commenting recently. I've mainly been on mobile and the phone/ ipad wouldn't keep me logged in and it's too hard to type without seeing my password on the tiny letters.


Thanks for reading this post! Your comments make my day and I would love to hear from you. I only ask that you don't write anything malicious.
