a trip to the petshop

For the final weekends Gandelow Gang classes the kids got to make their very own ‘goldfish in a bowl’. It was so cute. First they got to make and mix some plaster, and Grainne and I poured the mix into cute little fish moulds ( I couldn’t resist buying the moulds on my last visit to IKEA- knew we’d use them at some stage). Within minutes the kids were oooing and ahhing as the fish were popped from the moulds and quickly got busy with making them their own.
- With oil pastels and a layer of ink the kids painted their goldfish bowls
- With cocktail sticks in hand they etched little eyes and scaley lines onto the fish bodies
- Each little fish took on a life of it’s own then with different coloured inks and gold paint. The ink dried really fast into the absorbent plaster.
And when dry each of the kids got to fill plastic bags with their bowl and new pet fish and carry them home to meet the rest of the family :)
