Fingerpainting the Ocean

I had some blue jello in the fridge that has been there for a long time
so we made it into fingerpaint.
At first the children wanted to use the spoon to spread the jello around,
I realized then that I haven't been offering enough art sensory activities
that just require their hands.
I removed the bowl and spoon and modeled using my fingers
and that seemed to give them the nudge they needed
to do it too.
Loved seeing them get their whole hand into the action.
I had added white glue to the jello so the children could add paper fish
and shaped sequins to their pictures.
