In addition to the Great Sea Slug Beauty Contest that H2O is running, we have been spreading the sea slug love through two free workshops held recently in Raleigh and Apex, NC. About 68 people participated as students from toddlers to teens got to learn why sea slugs are such fascinating and lovable creatures!
There were a variety of hands-on activities for students to do. They got to make their own sea slugs out of playdough or polymer clay, as well as make sea slug-inspired Valentines.
There were educational displays on sea slugs and ways to help the ocean and its creatures:
There were also games to play, and even a sea slug storytime!
Everyone went home not only with a great understanding of these underappreciated invertebrates, but some fun and beautiful artwork.
And a good and educational time was had by all!
