Rainbow Fish

This week Aubrey is going to a summer camp and the theme is Ocean. She has brought home some cute crafts, like these:It inspired me to do an “Ocean” craft with the twins this morning. We made Rainbow Fish, read the book The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister and had fishy snacks.

To make our fish I gave them each a paper plate and a sponge. While they painted their plates (and the table, and each other) I cut out triangles for the fin & tail. I helped them glue on the eye, mouth, tail and finI shamefully admit that I haven’t spent much time doing crafts with them like I did with Aubrey…it was so much fun to watch them today explore and make a mess.

They were very polite and did clean up after themselves.After they finished we went outside to play in the sprinklers and rinse off all the paint. It was a great morning with two of my favorite little people!
