A craft with TheSquirrel
My 3-yearold and I made a fish tank together. It's a clean empty meat container! This can also be done with the styrofoam kind. That's what I used when I made one of these with my Mommy as a girl...was always one of my favorite crafts I did with her. You can even finish by covering the face of it with clear cling wrap! (wouldn't have photographed well). We started by painting the inside of the container blue, then I cut out "seaweed" shapes with green construction paper and they stuck to the wet paint. I cut the fish shapes out of construction paper and we wanted to decorate the fish with some foam shapes we have. We could also stick the fish to the back but I wanted to try to suspend them from fishing line (no pun intended!) That, however, is tricky because of the way the line stays curled from being rolled on the roll. Well, one of them is hanging without being a little stuck to the blue paint...
