Fish Fingers and Penguins

I did some fun theme weeks with the kiddos this summer. One week that we had was fish week. We had fun doing different crafts throughout the week. We made fish finger puppets. I got some of the ideas for the bodies on etsy. I took felt and cut out shapes of fish and then sewed them together. Aunt Miss came over and helped MnM with the puff paints. I think they turned out adorable if I do say so myself.

We also made the look and see bags found on Make It and Love It. Those bags have been awesome for little SMac at church. I found a bead kit at Michael's that had lots of fun things that were perfect colors for boys and girls. I also picked up some erasers toppers that worked perfect in the bags too. My only complaint about the ones I did was I used sand instead of the filler the Make It and Love It ones had. The sand was harder to work with when sewing. It has also changed colors since I sewed them this summer. It was one of those "use what you got" moments. The kids love them so I guess that's all that counts.

I also found another fun craft idea at Family Fun. If you haven't found this site yet and have children it's a MUST. They have awesome crafts and ideas that are easy, inexpensive and designed just for kids. We made the pipe cleaner penguins. The instructions were super easy and before you know it we had a penguin family. MnM liked doing the craft and little SMac liked destroying playing with them.
