Making an Aquarium

With all the rainy weather we've been having I have had to come up with some indoor projects to keep Annabelle amused. So far my favourite is a mini aquarium made using a soft drink bottle - it kept her amused for hours!


I drew sea creatures on a sheet of cardboard and gave Annabelle paint to colour them...


 ... as well as paint Annabelle also used pencils, she seemed particularly heavy handed with the black!


When the paint was dry I cut out the animals and Annabelle and I stuck them 
inside a  clean soft drink bottle, which I had turned upside down.


The finished product - my no water, no mess aquarium!
