Cut-and-Color Printable: Fishbowl

It's a cold, wet day here today and since we're pretty much stuck inside as a result, it kind of put me in mind of a fishbowl. Just color in the picture, cut on the dotted lines and paste the pieces onto the bowl and enjoy a happy scene.

the Printable:


  1. My son's daycare teacher used this in a project for his class. She fingerpainted green paint onto their hands, then had them do a handprint in the bowl, with the fingers pointing to one side. Then she painted blue paint all around the handprint and put an eye and smiley mouth in Sharpie at the heel of the handprint. Looks like a Betta fish swimming in the bowl (the fingers are fluttery Betta fins). This is for a 12mo-18mo classroom, so they are only just starting to explore arts & crafts. I am replicating the idea to send to grandparents. I love it! Great blog, by the way.

  2. I used your printables in a math activity and am linking up from my teaching blog to your blog! Thanks for the idea! :)
