World water day – 1st day challenge

Today, we invite you to create a beautiful rainbow fish with your little ones. Babies can do it as well.

  • paper plate (if you don’t have just cut out a fish shape from a paper)
  • washable paint
  • googly eye (optional)
  • glue
  • sponge paintbrush (babies, toddlers can use their fingers as well, or pom poms with pin clothes are also good)
Set out washable paints in red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Stick on the googly eye (or draw one on). Next, let your little ones dip their sponge paintbrushes (fingers, pom poms) in the colors and stamp the paints on the paper plate. When finished let dry then cut out a tail and a mouth for the fish and stick them on the fish’s body. After these steps your adorable rainbow fish are complete.
During the painting you can sing the rainbow song or 1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive.
