Children at Apple Tree Pre-school enjoyed a messy morning of papier-mâché and painting to decorate model fish for Sidmouth Sea Fest.
The school is one of many across Devon working with Sidmouth Coastal Community Hub for a display in the event’s main marquee in May.
Sidmouth College, St John’s School and Sidmouth Primary School have also participated in the project.
Coco Hodgkinson, from Sidmouth Coastal Community Hub, said: “The project is aimed at encouraging children to get involved with their local environment. Its providing arts-based learning opportunities that are accessible to all ages and abilities, getting the children involved in a creative and hands on way and to encourage conversation about what fish children enjoy eating, from sea to plate, sustainable fishing and stories from the sea.
“By getting the children involved with sidmouth Sea Fest we hope that they can learn to value and celebrate their coastal community and appreciate our beautiful coastal location and all it has to offer.”
