Coral Reef

painting21

Ok I LOVE summer with my girls. These moments are magical! Today I asked June what she wanted to make and without hesitation in her three year old imagination she quickly responded…”Fish mommy…I want to make fish please”

So we google imaged “tropical coral reef”

She loved looking at all the fish and talking about all the different colors and designs.

She drew some fish and I held her little hand and helped draw some more. She had a list of everything she wanted: blowfish, star fish, catfish, flounder,speckled trout, shark, jelly fish, and SquidWard (my husband is a fisherman and she is obsessed with fish)

I cut them out and we counted them and sorted them a few times.

She finally added some buttons and sequins with Elmer’s glue

I used my hot glue gun to glue the pieces together. June picked out some shells for the bottom and we were thrilled with the finished coral reef!!

Would you believe me if I told you that we emptied the cotton substance of two diapers into a bucket, added water, and VOILA, SNOW!!

LET the fun begin!!

And its easy clean up, just run the hose over it and it dissolves!

Cheap and simple summer fun!
