Dr. Seuss’s birthday was March 2nd. We always enjoy celebrating Dr. Seuss and reading on that day. This year was extra special because it happened to also fall on the day we had planned to celebrate my youngest son’s birthday. While my daughter was looking for fun craft ideas she came across some ideas for using hands to make fish representing One Fish Two Fish.

I decided that using Joseph’s feet and making his monthly footprint art into fish would also be fun. So we printed out a fish bowl template. Then we dipped one foot into red paint and placed it on the fish bowl. Next, I did the other foot in blue paint and placed it on the fish bowl.
Then we washed his feet off with a baby wipe and allowed the paint to dry. Once the paint dried we added a quick mouth and eyes with a black sharpie marker and cut the fish bowl out.
One thing I will note, is that if you were going to do this craft with children who had bigger hands or feet you would want to choose a different fish bowl. I would try to find one that was landscape and not vertical to allow more room.
This was an easy and fun craft and I look forward to adding it into our collection and watching his feet grow throughout the year. I hope you enjoy this craft. I would love for you to share your finished projects or ideas with us!
