Kindergarten Pout Pout Fish

My kindergarteners love the book The Pout Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen.
The kindergarteners love it so much that they practically have the book memorized. Since they love the book so, I decided to incorporate this into their art show. The students created their own version of a pout pout fish using crayons. After they were finished, they placed tissue paper squares on top, and then brushed water over the tissue. Once the tissue paper was dry, the squares dropped off, leaving a "watercolor" like painting behind.
Check out those pout pout lips!

What beautiful art! Please tell your kindergarteners that they're very creative and wonderful artists.

And remind them that a book a day keeps the pout-pouts away!

Best Fishes,
Debbie Diesen (author of The Pout-Pout Fish)

Thank you for the great idea! I am looking for something to tame the wild beasts for a few more days. :-)
