thanks (again) to teachkidsart
we went from whining
"I can't draw a fish"
over and over and over
"Thank-you, Momma, for doing this with us!"
Lily had difficulty with the 'paint the entire page' concept;
she much prefers to thoroughly saturate a spot with color.
If you look closely on the right side of her paper,
under one of her baby fishies
you'll see her very first person!
Josiah's lionfish (and baby)
Jeremiah added babies, a turtle, and a jellyfish
(fabulous scissoring, Bud!)
Brandon and I
wished we would have been more generous with the salt
(love this guy's eye & mouth!)
This could certainly have been a two day project;
I think we spent about an hour and a half painting.
It was fun to do it all together
but the boys want to do it again
and make sea turtles instead of fish
and I think we'll paint & salt the background one day
and make the turtles the next
then come back later and cut & paste.
