Johnny made this cute paper plate fish craft at preschool after reading the book Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister, and I had to share! The book is lovely, too. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend finding a copy!
Rainbow Fish Paper Plate Fish Craft for Kids
This is a very quick and easy craft! The tail is the triangle that was cut out for the mouth, with a googly eye and scales made from aluminum foil and tissue paper for decoration. Simple, cute, and fun – just the way I like structured crafts.
Preschool is finally out for the summer, and we’re making the most of long days interrupted only by the occasional gymnastics class. I even enrolled Lily in Mommy & Me classes for the summer! She has been begging to participate for months, and the staff at our gym kindly offered to let Emma and Johnny hang out with their summer camp kids during Lily’s classes – an offer I absolutely could not refuse!!!
