Christian Fish Puzzle

Ichthus, illustrated in the picture, is the Greek word for fish and was used by the early Christians as a secret symbol to identify each other. This puzzle is used to illustrate that everybody has a part in the whole. This is a good project for a sunday school class. Thanks to Vivian Isackson of Kings Park for loaning her group project to us.


Construction Paper (various colors)




Glue Stick


Click on Printables and print out the fish pattern. Trace Fish onto construction paper. Cut out and glue onto 8.5 x 11 sheet of contrasting paper.

Use small pieces as patterns and trace on various colors of paper.

Assign each child a part of the puzzle and a spot to glue it on the fish using the photo as a reference.

Show them how working together they can all become one.

This project was reprinted from the Stephen Ministries series.
