How we made the Shark Painting

These are all the steps we used to make the shark cookie cutter painting. You can also find suggestions for changing this up for different ages.

Draw a circle in the center

You start by drawing a circle in the center. This is super easy this is the area we will leave white.

Now if you have younger kids you want to draw the circle and do several of them to make the colors of blue in the watercolors.

Also if you are worried about painting the table you can put paper under the painting. But I’ll tell you we use a magic eraser to clean up the paint.

Paint the Sharks

You place the shark cookie cutter on the paper. You can start with the big or small cookie cutter. It does not matter which you do first. You want to make sure to hold it as still as you can.

Then you use the q-tip to paint inside the cookie cutter. I love the q-tip for the fine motor they get.
