them clutter your classroom :) Today we are going to hang ten and hit the waves with more beach ideas...this time we're also including Hawaii, Luau,

When I taught Kindergarten, I did a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom theme in my classroom. It was a great way to set up a fun and colorful classroom while incorporating the alphabet which was a huge focus for the year.

This is an actual table skirt, but you could create something similar with hula skirts from the Dollar Store and a glue gun. I had attached one on my desk.

I would highly suggest...

... not giving/adopting them out to just anyone. Seahorse can be extremely difficult to take care of. You don't just feed them and walk off like most people do with other fish.
What species are they? Are they eating frozen foods or only taking live foods? Did you get them from a petstore or perhaps Ocean Rider online?
I have raised seahorses before, they are beautiful creatures.A friend of mine writes articles about them and their care for some of the tropical fish magazines. :)
I personally would love to see pictures of yours.
