Something is Fishy Around Here
Okay, I think this is round 4 getting fish into our tank. Our water tested perfect today, so I went for it. We got two guppies and two neon tetras. St. Francis, pray for us.
Motion Cups Craft
by Melissa @ St. Brigid’s Academy Blog ©2011
Still in crafting mode, I came up with this idea on my own while playing with my 3-year-old who loves Ariel. This might remind you of Crayola’s glow dome, which we happen to have and think is really cool. But here’s a homemade idea.
1. Take two tall plastic cups (clear), construction paper, black pen, scissors and glue.
2. Draw/Cut Out your STILL items and your MOVING items. Think fish, ships, cars, leaves, snow, etc. Something like this perhaps, which I “whipped up” out of my imagination today.
3. Paste layers of still items on one cup, moving items on the other. Stack together.
4. Turn one cup or both for fun effects!
