Crochet turtles/whales/sea creatures

We require people to assist us in making sea creatures. These creatures need to have stomachs that we can either, fill with plastic pieces and reach inside the mouth to put in and out or have the whole stomach being able to be removed and opened up to show the plastic. 

These creatures can be made to any size at all. We would love them to be big enough that a group of children can see easily if they are sitting a few rows back from us. However, we do not mind at all what size they are, as long as the whales are not life size! They can be any colour and have any designs on them as long as they can be used to represent plastic that is inside of our sealife. 

We will happily pay for the wool used and would love to have photos of the people making them so we can post on our website who our amazing volunteers are. That decision is totally up to the volunteer though but progress pictures would be brilliant if possible.
