Give your child a paper plate with a triangular mouth shape drawn on one side. Have your child cut out the triangles to make scales. Then have her glue the triangular shapes on the opposite side of the plate to make tails. Let the children draw eyes and color her fish. Then have them paint the large sheet of butcher paper with diluted blue paint. When the paint is dry, have her glue her fish on the paper "ocean", and hang the ocean mural on the wall.
