You may have noticed we’ve been creating a large mural of tropical fish as we learn about fish. So far we’ve shared the marbled fish craft and the fork painted fish craft that we made for our mural. Today we’re sharing one more way we used process art to create our own unique tropical fish.

They loved watching to see what designs the paint would make on the paper. Tinker was thrilled to see bubbles popping up through the holes in the potato masher.
She was also fascinated by watching the colors slowly mix together.
In between painting, Lovey liked to watch the paint slowly slide off of the potato masher.
Once the paint was dry we cut out some basic fish shapes and added the new creations to our mural.
To extend the learning even more, you could have preschoolers tell a story about their special fish.
Older kids could write a story and create background pages to show the setting of the story. Then use their fish to “swim” through the scenes as they retell the story.
