Kid's enjoy seeing how their hands look on paper. In this activity kids can learn how to easily draw a fish in a fish bowl - simply from the outlines of their own hands!

 

Use our Soft Triangle Crayons which are made from beeswax, to provide easy colour lay-down and ultimate safety in this activity idea. The triangle shape of the crayons teaches youngsters the correct grip and aids in their development.

Try adding some fine motor skills practice to the activity and cut your fish and fish bowl elements. Glue onto a bluch piece of cardboard or a piece of paper to create an underwater scene.
