    This project is SO awesome!!! How’d they organize ALL those people; (just like tle letters A-Z on Sesame Street!!) I think the messege shouts P.O.O Protect Our Oceans, LOUD & CLEAR!!! These GIANT works of art remind me of the hundreds-of-feet hight sand sculptures in Peru!

    Good idea to teach kids how to go green and protect mother nature.

    I’ve never heard of kid’s ocean day before. The kids did a good job though, took a lot of effort. Not be picky or anything but North America looks kind of small :).
