This not so crafty momma has also been a slightly sick momma over the past few days, so what we have to share today is so simple it’s ridiculous. It did however keep the toddler active and occupied, so it was a win!
- Paint (We used three colors, but how many different colors you use is totally up to you)
- Paper Plate
- Googly Eye
- Paint Brush (Optional. If your little one is too little to hold a paint brush, just let them finger paint. Our toddler did a little bit of both)
This fish is perfect for little ones six months to five years old. We started by letting our toddler paint the plate.
After that, we let it dry for awhile. If your little one has as much fun with paint as ours does, it will probably take several hours. Once it was dry, we cut out a triangle shape and glued it on the plate for a tail.
After that, we flipped it over and put on a googly eye. This fish was a lot of fun without a lot of effort!
