Time for an activity catch up, following the Finding Nemo/Finding Dory theme.
We created a Nemo and Marlin home.
First the kids painted some card blue for the sea, I then gave them some cardboard fish shapes I had made and they placed some strips of masking tape across them. Then I got them to paint the fish with some orange puffy paint (a mixture of self-raising flour, salt, water and orange paint).
I then put the fish in the microwave for about 30 seconds and the paint puffed up and dried out, we took off our strips of tape and we had our Nemos and Marlins.
Then it was time to make them their coral home; I gave them all a mixture of wool, pipe cleaners and other pink materials, plus some glue and tape and let them get to work.
Then added the fish to the picure and we had some great pictures of Nemo and Marlin’s Home.
