School of handprint fish!

School of Hand Print Fish!

We kicked off our "school year" with this cute canvas painting which we have named, "School is for Fish". A phrase we herd from a unschooling friend not too long ago.

Using a white canvas, which I purchased with my favorite 40% off coupon from Michaels, paint it blue with either acrylic or tempura paint. I used a foam brush but any will work. You can either keep it solid blue, or did like I've shown above and make wavy lines to give some depth.

Paint your kiddos hands with the colors of their choice, keeping in mind the base of their palm you will draw a face. Press down and your pretty much done! I painted on some seaweed and light blue bubbles but it looked great without that too.

This is a great keepsake gift too, my MIL has been eying it ever since we hung it!
