Kids Crafts – Sea Urchin

Sea Urchins are pretty tough to eat, but sea otters seem to have no trouble! Here’s a sea urchin you can make from edible fruits. Try it!

What you Need

  • an orange
  • toothpicks
  • raisins, craisins, or any other bits of fruit or dried fruit

What you do

  1. Take an unpeeled orange and cut it in half. Set it on a paper plate.
  2. Poke a toothpick through 3 or 4 raisins, then poke it into the orange.
  3. Repeat this with more raisins and toothpicks. Soon you’ll have a prickly “sea urchin!”
  4. Try this using tiny bits of fruit pieces, or dried fruit. Use your imagination and make your sea urchin unique! Makes a great desert treat.

P.S. Be careful with the toothpicks! They’re sharp!
