Rainbow Fish

Have you ever read the book Rainbow Fish?  
My daughter loves it.  She loves anything with sparkles.  My son and I did a craft at our local Children’s Museum during weekly “Toddler Time”.  I thought it was so cute that I immediately made it with my daughter later that week.  This craft ties in perfectly to “Rainbow Fish”.  

Here is what you need
Paper plate
Tempera paint
Shimmery sequins
Googly eyes
Cut a triangle out of one side of the paper plate. {This will be the fish’s mouth}.
Staple the triangle to the opposite side of the plate. {This will be the fish’s tail}
Mix some glue and paint together {I don’t have exact measurements here, sorry}
Let your kids paint the fish and the sprinkle the shimmery sequins on it
Glue on the googly eyes and Viola!
Now go curl up and read “Rainbow Fish” with the kiddos.
