(the same book where we found the Funky Fish Hat). Getting craft books from the library has been a fun was to decide in crafts while encouraging reading. Chiquita likes to look at all the projects, but isn't concerned with the results looking like those in the book, thankfully.
- Tissue paper
- School glue
- Fish cut-outs
- Any other craft supplies you want
Originally I planned to paint the cardboard blue like suggested in the book, but when it came time I didn't want to pull out the paint and deal with the additional clean-up involved with painting. So I separated out all the blue tissue paper and poured lots of glue on the cardboard. We spread out the strips of tissue paper until the whole circle was covered. Chiquita decided on the placement of all the sea creatures while I wielded the glue.
I really like the result! I'm hoping to display this a little more permanently - maybe in Chato's room or the bathroom.
