When they were finished they cut out their fish and glued them onto the background paper. (You might need some tape to hold some of the strips of paper in place on the back of the fish.) So cute!
This was a day when I felt a little guilty that the children didn't have smocks on. Paint went everywhere, in the hair of the girls who pushed their long locks back while painting, and on their clothes. Some of the mothers laughed, thank heavens, but I had my fingers crossed that the stains would come out, and that the mothers would put the girls' hair in pigtails next time!
