You must admit that the titles I come up with for my posts are quite original. I guess that’s as good as it’s going to get since I’m usually working on my blogs around midnight.
Anyhoo, today I am sharing with you a super-duper, easy-peasy craft that relates to the beach theme we are doing this week.
Here’s what you need:
- Tissue paper
- Contact paper cut into the shape of a fish
I cut up the tissue paper into some little squares so it would be a bit more manageable for Hailey’s little hands.
And now for the fun- tear up the tissue paper. This is excellent for strengthening the muscles in the hands which are very important for those fine-motor skills. (As a side note- the marks you see on Hailey’s arms are my attempts at re-doing her tattoo’s that had faded away since our 4th of July celebration. It just broke her heart that her tattoos were gone, so I did my best to re-do them.)
Stick the torn up tissue paper on the fish shaped contact paper.
Add another piece of contact paper to hold all of the tissue paper in. Add a cute little face. And you have an adorable little fish.
You can display it on a window, or let your ornery toddler carry it around for the rest of the day.
