Those are great, and what a cool craft to do with children. I love the variety, they'd be cool all strung together like tibetan prayer flags...


I love this!! What an awesome idea and they came out amazing! We have some gyotaku prints hanging in our house too. I'm going to have to try this with Buddy. Thanks for sharing and Happy belated Boy's Day!


I've always wanted to try fish printing; this looks like such a great project! I love the colors and patterns on the kids' fishes (and the subtle dyes of the flags). Our calendar says that May 5 is "Children's Day" rather than "Boys' Day" -- but isn't there a Girls' Day, too?


What a fun activity, the koinobori look great!


Wow, good looking gyotaku koinobori. How creative! :D


At marine camp, they made us stamp fabric (t-shirts, if I remember correctly) with real fish. I never knew it was an actual art form! All I could think of was that it was icky. :)


i love your modified gyotaku activity, and the koinobori are wonderful!


Amanda these are fantastic. I have similar fish prints done by each of my kids (they used a rubber fish too). This is such a great idea for a kid's birthday party.


These are so beautifully done and so simple! Max would like to know if there's a shark version...Perhaps that is not quite in keeping :) You always have such inspirational children's things.
