Rainbow Fish Craft

This week's stART project (story + art), we read Rainbow Fish to the Rescue (an oldie, but goodie book). And the boys made rainbow fish to go along with the story. We used poster board to help make our fish more sturdy. I cut up tissue paper and aluminum foil into little squares. I poured some glue into a bowl and handed both boys a paintbrush to brush the glue onto their fish. We just used a big black circle for the eyes.

The fish turned out Super Cute, didn't they?

As always I'm linking up to stART (story + art)  at A Mommy's Adventures.

We've done this before minus the foil - I'll bet that makes it extra fun. They did a great job.

You are such a crafty mom...I'm left with intense feelings of self-loathing after I see what you've been up to!, no keep it up, some day it will motivate me I'm certain...or not! Terrific though!

This is excellent timing for us! Our library's summer program is bringing a puppet show of Rainbow Fish next Wed. and I was hoping to re-read our collection of Rainbow Fish books on Mon. and Tues. and now I have a great art project to go with them. Maybe our Rainbow Fish can even go to the puppet show with us! Thanks for the inspiration!

Beautiful project for a great book, and I am impressed that the boys stuck with it. I tried a similar thing with Elmer, and my daughter was done after about 5 squares :)

They did turn out cute. And I love their cute, proud faces.
