Here is my 1st graders artwork. This project is simple enough for a preschooler, but just as fun for a 7-year old. I loved how my son mixed up his colors making some really unique looking fish. He also had the idea to make his big fish into an Anglerfish with the light hanging off his head. Totally awesome!! You can see he drew a little jellyfish in his scene too.
A perfect book to go along with this craft is Hooray for Fish! by Lucy Cousins.
Cupcake liners are a favorite crafting material of mine. If you are new here or have missed some, make sure to check out our other Cupcake Liner Crafts.
