Supplies Needed For the One Fish Two Fish Wooden Slices Craft
- Wooden Slices
- Graphite Pencil
- Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brushes
- Posca Pens
- Black Sharpie Pen
- Varnish or Modge Podge
In the famous Dr Seuss Book there are four fish. You may want to draw and paint each fish to go alongside this fun rhyming story.
This can turn into a wonderful activity for your little one to enjoy later as well!
Begin by drawing the outline of the fish on separate wooden slices. If you don’t have wooden slices, you can also use cardboard cutouts instead- it is all about making the most of what you have. You can use a pencil and use images from the One Fish, Two Fish book as a guide.
If you don’t have the book, you can also look online as there are plenty of images for this book on the internet.
Use a paintbrush and paints to paint the different fish for this wooden slice art project. If you prefer you can use painting pens such as the Posca pens of Chalkola markers. Just use whatever you feel comfortable with. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
And if you’re using paintbrush pens, you can also have your little one do it!
Once done, don’t forget to outline the fish using a black marker or Posca pen. This will add definition to the characters and make them stand out more.
If your little one is good at drawing within lines, you can also get him to do this himself. Getting him involved in the project can be an amazing learning experience for him, and will also help strengthen the bond between you two- just what you need right?
Then you’re done! These are super cute and fun and would make a fantastic art project for preschool kids or a great activity for Dr Seuss Day!
Plus, the wooden discs actually act as coasters too- perfect to hold your little one’s glass of milk!
Make the most of these crucial years of your little one. They’re filled with opportunities for you to make him learn, grow and develop faster than you know.
And if you’re looking out for some more activities, projects or even recipes for Dr Seuss Day, or just to keep your toddler even more interested in it all, we’ve got some cool stuff to share!
