My three year old wanted to play Go Fish with my five year old (almost). But he doesn't know his numbers very well yet, so the poker cards were no good. I decided to make them some cards for Go Fish thinking I could do it quickly, but the project ended up taking a bit longer (like all day). First of all, our printer wasn't working very well so I decided I would have fun making stamps and color the prints with colored pencils.
Here are the cards before color. I really like my fish!
The stamp for the back of the cards, tested on scrap paper.
All twelve colors.
For some reason my three-year-old took a few bites out of the back stamp. Luckily, he didn't swallow. But still, what the heck, is he a boy or a dog?! It's not like he's teething either-he is three! Anyway, I tried to salvage it by going for a corroded/grunge look.
Finished! (I did end up laminating them later)
And they are a success! Little hands- they had to lay out their cards and have a barrier in between (Battleship style).
