This is a fun easy way for the kids to make their own fishy placemats.


Time: 1 hour
Age: Under 5's, 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Paint
Empty clip wrap or alfoil roll
Glue
Disposable plate
Black marker pen or sharpie
Bubble wrap

Method
Cut out bubble wrap and glue it onto the empty roll. Paint along the bubble wrap an underwater colour and roll out onto your sheet of paper.



Dip thumb print on plate of paint colours and gradually add thumb prints on paper, leaving room as these will be your swimming fish.



Once dry, with a black marker pen, turn thumbprints into fish by adding eyes, fins and tails.
