Folk Art Fish
This is a fun project, especially since fish are such an appealing subject matter for artists, both old and young.
I assembled my supplies, mainly using material that I had on hand. I purchased foam-core, in black and white, at the dollar store, as well as large posicle sticks. I turned a damp sponge into a stamp pad by adding a small amount of acrylic paint. The wine corks I've been saving for just such a project.
I cut the heads, tails, and bones out of the foam-core with an x-acto knife. When I did the project with small children I had all of the parts laid out and they could pick out what they wanted.
The acrylic dries quickly so the children were able to assemble their fish immediately after printing.
