Paper Plate Rainbow Fish

Pin It
it’s seems i’m off to a slow start.  you may notice that many of my early projects are my adaptations on tried and true versions many of today’s moms did when they were children.  i love classics.  also, there are so many things i’ve always wanted to do “when i had a kid.”  well…now i do.  and i only get one chance.  many of the items i use in projects are everyday items.  i think this helps children to look at things creatively and develop their own interpretations; rather than abiding by the societal rules for the object. 

this project was originally inspired by our MOPPETS lesson.  the lesson was about when Jesus fed 5000 people from 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread (Matthew 14:13-21).  the two year old group that i work with made their own versions of the fish that Jesus used to feed the people.
