This would be the perfect way to remember a field trip to the local zoo or aquarium if you are lucky to have one in your town. Even though the designer is using this as a preschool or kindergarten activity, all elementary school age kids could appreciate this activity. With the water bottles you use during the trip, the next day, students could create there very own fish to float around the room for a few days before bringing them home.

The hardest thing about this project is deciding on what color to "paint" the fish. This is a cute way to keep those water bottles out of our landfills. How about hanging these from filament string to hang in front of a window? Cute
