Art Ideas From A Teacher

Lynn Nichelini teaches at the Santa Margarita Children’s Center in Marin. She found these very cool “little fish” and has shared the source and some ideas of how she uses them in her classroom.

She uses them in a variety of ways including…
– with blue playdough
– to make impressions in clay/playdough
– for sorting/measuring/weighing activities
– stream/lake provocation (blue material for water, wood pieces, rocks) for pretend play
– visual for drawing
