We had hundreds of shells on site for kids to paint, and I think most of them are now decorated and covered in colors. The tent was bustling all day! I had the pleasure of entertaining two shell painters-named Emma and Aiden, who suggested that we all paint dolphins. Emma and Aiden made their dolphins light blue, like a real dolphin, and black, respectively. I painted the dolphin green because I've never seen a green dolphin before, and to be honest with you, I wanted to see a green dolphin. They were great designers. Afterward, they instructed me to create an octopus with rainbow colored tentacles, who they named "Rainbow." We had a good laugh at how funny Rainbow came out.
I also tried my hand at fish printing, which we've done a few times at Piers Park: Home of the Original Fish Printed T-Shirt. We painted real flounder with colors and patterns that anybody wanted, then pressed them onto paper and t-shirts. The paper makes great refrigerator decorations, and the t-shirts are awesome souvenirs that are made with your own unique creations.
This event was amazing, but I'm hoping that next time, Saver the Harbor will partner with a Pizza Festival or Chili Contest; I'm not a huge fan of seafood.
