If you've never heard of "sea monkeys" get ready to learn all about this famous retro pet while making an out-of-this-world aquarium for them to live and grow. Jamie Hudson is a PhD scientist who started a craft company and loves combining art with science. Follow the instructions on your sea monkey kit to bring them to life, then craft them a new home with the Cricut that will send them to outer space. Fun fact: sea monkeys have been to space several times. And if sea monkeys aren't your thing, you can still use the techniques and materials from this class to decorate a small fish tank or terrarium.
