After our Ocean Sensory Activity we needed to make an ocean themed craft, so inspired by our favorite clown fish and blue tang fish, we painted Nemo & Dory. Finding Nemo was my daughter’s first favorite movie, and ever since she has been a little Disney fan! When she was two we bought her a mini salt water fish tank with her very own Nemo and Marlin (unfortunately Dory grows too big for our tank). So while we were painting our hands to make our Handprint Craft, we watched our very own Nemo nod in approval when he saw the painting we made of him :). We are counting down the days until Finding Dory comes out.
