I designed this for my sons to help them to remember their numbers and to make it more fun to learn them. I first got a basic shape and enlarged it in MS Paint. Then I printed out this fish as a stencil and then traced multiple fish onto different colored construction paper. I have made 100 fish since I would like my son to learn up to 100 in counting. As we learn a new one, we will tape them onto the fish bowl. So far they have learned 5 from five little pumpkins and then we are starting on 1 for a turkey.
I found and outline and basically enlarged it
to fit what I wanted
then I took posterboard (red is all I had)
and drew on a shape of a fish bowl and assed the
water wave and the grasses on the bottom.
