How to make the Shark Cookie Cutter Painting

While my girls are older you can draw a line on the paper to help younger kids know where to paint the sky and the ocean.

First, the first thing we painted was the ocean. We used a darker blue for the color. It needs to be a different blue from the sky. We picked the darkest color the watercolor pallet had. We use a bigger brush than comes with the paint set to paint bigger areas easier.

Then we picked a very light blue for the sky. We covered the rest of the paper in the light color. One reason I like doing the lighter color lasts is that it can overlap the ocean color and still look okay.

Next, we mixed some black and white paint to make gray. I have a fun paint tray that I like to reuse for painting projects.

Finally, we used the shark fin cookie cutter and q-tips to paint the shark fin gray. You hold the cookie cutter in place and paint inside. If kids can hold the cookie cutter you can always use the cookie cutter to cut out a template for them to paint in.
