I found this cute little project on my bloggy friend, Kati's blog, Country Girl, City Life. As soon as I read this post I knew I just had to do this activity with Aiden!
I cut out the fish outline while Aiden was playing with drawing with markers. It took awhile because I'm not the best drawer! The first fish looked more like a whale. While this wouldn't have bothered Aiden in the least, I had to keep trying!
We then went to the library and checked out Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. When we got home, we read the book a couple of times. Aiden LOVES reading!
Our glue didn't want to pour, so I let him paint glue on his fish. He thought that was great.
The lighting was terrible and not a single picture came out!
A Finished Rainbow Fish
When he was finished with Rainbow Fish, he spotted the "whale" and said, "Let's make him a friend!"
I gave Aiden a bowl of sequins. And instead of picking each one up and arranging it (like I would have done) he just dumped the entire bowl out onto the fish!
And then he painted over the sequins with more glue...
