What you’ll need

  • Paint
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrushes
  • Glitter
  • Paper Plates
  • Buttons
  • Small Stones
  • Fiber + Thread

Here’s how to do it

  • Paint the paper plate blue and sprinkle glitter over it. Let it dry.
  • When the paper plate is dry, draw your submerged pond plants with glue and then press on the fiber + thread.
  • Use the small stones at the bottom of the pond and the buttons for fish.

This is an awesome way to give your little kids some creative space. I love process art for exactly that reason. There’s no right or wrong.

While he was creating, so was I. That of course means no process pictures, but also, it means we spent time together, creating together. And that, my friends, is more important than anything.
