How the fun happens

Using the same basic idea as Plate Fish 1 cut out a triangle from a paper plate and attach to the other side with sticky tape.

Decorating the fish

Decant out paints into a paint pallet (I find if you don’t do this especially with finger paint pots the colours get mixed up into a general grey colour – this means that only a small amount of paint gets used each time making them go longer as well). Then I set up J in the high chair and put his fish and paint on the high chair tray and let him decorate the fish however he wanted to.

I then hung them up to dry and when dry will add eyes and probably some glitter as well

I think that the picture below says it all

The fun J had testing this idea
