This clever critter can make a ball hover in the air.Download Trained Seal Template

Trace the templates on to craft foam and then cut them out as shown. Cut 1-inch slits along the lines marked A and B.
Bend the seal over lengthwise and insert the flippers into the body by sliding slits A and slits B together. Thread the tubing over the fins and out the mouth. Now staple the body together roughly at the seal's chin.
Decorate the seal's face with markers and/or googly eyes. Color the Styrofoam ball with the markers.
To make the basket, use the pin or needle to poke a hole in the tubing about 1/4 inch from the end. Thread a little of the wire into the hole, then wrap it around the tip of the tubing a few times (not so tightly that it crimps the tubing). Now hold the Styrofoam ball over the mouth of the tube and very loosely wrap the rest of the wire around the bottom half of the ball.
Blow into the tubing to float the ball in the air, adjusting your breath to gently lower it right back into the basket.
