Children can learn about one of the most playful swimmers in the ocean, dolphins. We have a collection of activities to share with you to add to your ocean animal unit study including a free printable Dolphin Facts Craft Spinner that kids can color and assemble. The Dolphin Facts Craft Spinner is a fun crafty way for kids to learn things about dolphins like what they eat, where they live, and what type of animal they are.

Print out the Dolphin Facts Spinner. I like to print our crafts on white cardstock paper (affiliate link) because the paper is thick enough kids can’t see through the top of the spinner.
Have children color and cut out the spinner.
Use a hole puncher to punch out the black hole in the middle of the Spinner Top. Since our hole puncher could not reach the middle of the Spinner Bottom, I used a sharp pen to poke the hole.
Place the Spinner Top on top of the Spinner Bottom. But a brad through the center of the spinners and fold the back open.
Now your kiddo can spin the dolphin around to reveal 6 facts about dolphins.

Thank you so much! I ended up making my own circle for the facts and pictures because I wanted my kiddos to do the writing/illustrating themselves, but the front piece was absolutely brilliant! This was the perfect way for my kiddos to share some of the learning they’ve done about dolphins – I’m so grateful for your idea. Thank you from New Zealand 🙂
