Paint stamping nets and fish. Dollar store finds!

We used nylon scrubbies dipped in paint to create a net pattern on the paper:


In advance I cut these sponges (with sharp scissors) into a fish stamp shape:


Fish were dipped in paint and stamped on top of the net:


This was an easy project to work on and keep hands busy as we discussed what it means to be fishers of men and how we can share the Good News (and who we can share it with).

This is something I did with my preschool class, but it could be enhanced for younger elementary by having the children consider who are the "fish" they are sharing the Good News with and writing names on the fish. It would then serve as a reminder to pray for those friends/family members and to share the Gospel with them.
