Easy Handprint Fish

Okay, I'll admit it. You all know I'm a sucker for inexpensive, cute crafts I can do with the kids to keep them from getting bored or getting on each other's nerves!

I saw this craft a long time ago on Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas and just now was able to try it out with the kids. It's a winner, and incredibly easy.

What you need:
Any color paints the kids pick out
Paint brushes
White paper
Black marker

To make the fish paint the bottom of the palm nearest the wrist in one color. This will be the face. Then, paint the remainder of the palm in another color. Finally, paint the fingers in alternating colors.

Or basically, do what you want with the paint.

Make the handprint and allow it to dry.

Once it has dried, add the eye and the mouth to make the face.

We also dipped our fingers in blue paint to make air bubbles.

The kids love to do things like this and they turned out so cute!
