Bleeding Tissue Paper Fish Scales

We will be featuring many of our beach-themed activities in the coming couple of weeks as we wrap up our August beach theme!

The day we studied rainbow fish (and were disappointed to see how many are not so rainbow colored at all but are indeed quite iridescent!), we made scales our of tissue paper. Brush some water on top, and then peel off the tissue, and oila! A tissue-printed scale!  Easy and fun!

The kids decided to supplement the tissue-print scales with some decorations of their own.
