Ready for a craft that’s perfect for summer? This activity teaches you how to create a paper mobile using templates inspired by A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea. Turn your house into an aquarium by hanging these mobiles above your bed or in a window! You can adapt this project for all ages. Youngsters can color the sea creatures with crayons and an adult can assemble, or older kids can modify the activity to include sea creatures of their own design. Have fun as you travel to the bottom of the sea!

When I signed up to take Tropical Ecology as an undergraduate at Loyola University New Orleans, I had no idea that the final exam would be a two-week trip to Belize. Imagine my surprise on the first day of class as my professor, Dr. Bob, explained that we’d be spending time at a jaguar sanctuary, in a modern Mayan village and on an uninhabited island in the Caribbean to learn first-hand about the flora and fauna of the tropics. I packed up my dad’s old yellow hiking backpack with sunscreen and bathing suits and got ready to explore Belize.
