Folded Paper Plate Fish

Our old friend the paper plate once again is the foundation of this craft.


Paper Plate
Large Wiggle Eyes
Tacky Glue
Black Marker


Fold Paper Plate in half and cut off outer ring leaving enough to create the fish's tail. Cut a notch to create nose. Use picture as reference

Open fish and paint outside. It might be good to have the kids think about what decorations they want on their fish before they start painting. They don't have to be realistic. Mother Nature has a wild palette too.

Paint and let dry. Add details with black marker.

Glue on Wiggle Eyes and fold back up once everything is dry. Fish will stand on the rounded bottom.

You will have a whole school of one of a kind fish swimming around your classroom.
