Meet Rainbow Fish......

Hi meet Rainbow Fish part of my classroom display for the play corner. Now I have no art skills at all, but I managed to do this. I managed to sketch out the basic shape of Rainbow Fish and gradually painted it and added the detail. What do you think do you like it?

The theme this term is water So I was put in charge of this classroom display and play corner . The play corner is on a under water aquarium theme. Here are some photos. I designed the whole thing, I must admit Rainbow Fish  is a great educational resource.

Note the cut out rainbow Fish characters on the blue film ( which is the water ).

Here we go inside the aquarium shell material to the side and blue material covering the top. Honestly it really feels like an aquarium in there, shame I am too big too play in there.

Look who it is! It is Olivia the bozz eyed Octopus though sadly her lips fell off.

Careful those giant waves don't sweep you away! more Rainbow Fish characters on the waves.

More Rainbow Fish  art . I hope you have enjoyed my pictures and I hope it gives you ideas for your classroom or at home. It is so simple to do and encourages a multitude of play ideas and helps promote their leaning. I welcome your comments. Thank you.
