Today our craft was inspired by Amanda at Funny Days with Mommy and Maddie. I saw this on her blog on Monday and couldn’t wait to try it out with Aubrey. It fits in perfect with our Ocean them this week and Aubrey loves the movie “The Little Mermaid”.
1. We gathered our materials : Mermaid template from here, scraps of tissue paper, embellishments, hair (leftover Easter egg grass), glue, scissors, flower punch and blue background paper.
3. Then she added the embellishments to give her that lovely sparkle.
4. Then we added her eyes and hair. We had trouble getting the hair to stick with the glue so I ended up using double sided tape and putting it on with Aubrey’s supervision.
5. Finally we added a flower to her hair and viola…Little Mermaid and a very excited Aubrey.
After our craft it was time for lunch and Aubrey wanted goldfish for lunch. Goldfish are not a suitable lunch so I compromised and made her a “school of fish” which she enjoyed helping me make and eat. Lunch: Momma Tuna”fish” sandwich & her baby fish (pears with orange fins, raisin eyes and carrot scales) with parsley “seaweed”.
