I have always loved the ocean. One of my favorite things to do is sit on the beach and listen to the sounds.
It’s not just the typical waves crashing or the ocean breeze, I love the sounds of the seagulls too.
Listening to the cries of the seagulls mixed together with the rush of wind, and the crashes of salty waves… it’s Heaven. If you enjoy the seagulls too, you’re going to want to check out this latest craft template I’ve created.

4 Fun Seagull Themed Activities
Check out all the fun ways you can use these easy seagull craft templates today:
1. Summer Coloring Page
Before you travel to the beach for Summer vacation, print some of these paper seagulls as coloring pages for your little ones. It’s a great way to keep your children occupied on a road trip. Plus, you can teach them all about real seagulls while you travel.
You can even make a road trip binder to occupy children while you travel. Include these printable seagull pages, crayons or colored pencils, and blank paper for a quick game of tic-tac-toe or drawing their favorite beach creatures.
They’re sure to enjoy coloring their own seagull friends and everyone can get excited listening for seagulls at the beach as you get closer to your vacation destination.
2. Seagull Craft Stencil
If you like the ocean as much as I do, you probably have some beach themed art and decor around the house. For example, I have some large conch shells I found as a child and a painting of the sea.
You could use this seagull craft template to help create your own diy beach art. That way, you can bring the beach right into your home all year round.
Just print this simple miniature seagull, cut it out, and use the template as a stencil for your own beach themed canvas art or reclaimed wood sign. Then, add an inspiring quote like: “The gull sees farthest who flies highest.” – Jonathan Livingston Seagull
3. Paper Seagull Puppets
For more seagull themed fun with your little ones, why not host a puppet show? My kids love to make their own puppets and crawl behind the couch to put on an impromptu puppet show for me and my husband after dinner.
To turn these seagull templates into puppets just print, decorate, and cut out your seagull friends. Get creative with your decorations! Try craft feathers for a more realistic look or googly eyes to make your seagulls extra silly. Then, attach your seagull friend to a Popsicle stick and voila! Enjoy the show!
4. Ocean Animal Diorama
If you can’t make it to the ocean for a vacation this year, why not bring the ocean home? Use a recycled cardboard box to build your very own ocean diorama. It’s a fun activity the whole family can get in on!
Use clay to build beach-goers that look just like the members of your family, paint or decorate the inside of the box to look like the beach and ocean. You can even glue craft sand to the bottom for a realistic beachy feel!
Then, print and cut out miniature paper seagulls to hang from the “sky” in your beach scene. Finally, be sure to check out my other ocean creature template printables to add more ocean animal fun.
