The Cat in The Hat by Dr. Seuss {a fish craft}

In honor of Dr. Seuss’s Birthday here is a book inspired craft.
 Who is your favorite character from the cat in the hat book?  Mine has always been the level headed fish who tells the kids that the cat is trouble.  This classic Dr. Seuss book is full of fun characters but the fish seems to get left out when it comes to crafts.  I thought since he was my favorite character I would do a fish craft with the boys after reading the book.

What you need to make a fish in a bowl craft
Blue paper, orange paint, and markers.
What to do to make your fish
I put orange paint on a paper plate and put the kids hands in it.  I then placed their hand on the blue paper.  We left it to dry.  The kids continued to paint on more paper.   You cant put your hand in paint and call it a day now can you.  When the hand print was dry I went back and added the eye and mouth with a sharpie marker.  I was going to have my husband draw me a fishbowl around the fish but I came across a fun game at Mama Miss and she had a fishbowl printable in this game.  Perfect timing for me.  I printed out the fishbowl and traced it around the fish.  Now we have our fish in a fishbowl from the cat in the hat.  My boys love their fish and they are now hanging on the wall with more of their loved crafts they make.
