Easy funky cottage crafts: fish prints
Andrea says: The fish prints were really fun to do—painting the slimy body before it got cut up and eaten was a highlight. If I were to do it again I’d use better quality paper to avoid the buckling that you can see in the images. I also really like that the kids wrote the date and type of fish below it on the paper—reminding us of a summer when we actually caught something.
Cottage Life contributor and Georgian Bay cottager Andrea Curtis sent an email the other day telling us about a few crafts she and her two boys did at the lake this summer.
It’s a perfect cottage activity in my books: You’re commemorating a proud moment (the catching of the fish), you’re interacting with and learning about nature, and you’re creating a really neat (and I’d say, beautiful) keepsake. I’ll share more of her ideas in the next couple of days. Stay tuned!
