Father’s Day Craft: Something Fishy

So I am not a terribly creative person. However since having my little girl I have learned that the least expensive and most cherished gifts I can give people are crafts made by her tiny hands.

So I went to Michaels, got some stuff and this is what we made!

Something's Fishy...

It took us a total of 3 nights to do. I’m sure you could do it in 2 nights or one day if you have time to let the paint dry

So our first night I had my daughter paint a white piece of “foam paper”. This was less than $1.50 at Michaels. The glitter paint I had lying around from a previously failed project.

imageA Masterpiece!

The next night we painted the canvas board all blue. It’s about 12 inches wide by 8 inches long and was on sale at Michaels for 60% off.

Finally, I drew fish on the back of the foam board and cut them out, glued some buttons for eyes & stuck them on the canvas. TA-DA!

We will probably add some bubbles with silver glitter paint and write “Happy Fathers Day” on the side along with the year!

Happy Crafting! What are you doing for Father’s day?!?
