My plan for yesterday’s craft project had to be postponed, so we did two today! The first one was heavily inspired by this fishing game, but at the last minute I discovered that none of the large collection of eyelets I’ve amassed are magnetic, and I inexplicably have no paper clips in the entire house. But I did have googly eyes. (I have my priorities straight, obviously.)
First, the girls painted the fish with our well-used set of watercolor paints.
She'd rather be finger painting...or painting her fingers!
The rare polka-dot fish.
The even rarer plaid fish.
Then they glued on googly eyes. (This was Anna’s favorite part. I need to come up with a project that will use a lot of googly eyes for her.)
We're on our second bottle of glue this summer...
A school of googly-eyed fish!
We did our second project to give these a chance to dry, and then I punched holes in the tops of all the fish and Carolyn and I strung them on thread. We tied the strands to a stick we found outside, and, voilá: a giant fish mobile!
Fish. On a stick.
Fishiest door decoration ever?
