Print out our fish template. Cut the fish out and trace onto black construction paper with a white crayon. Cut the fish out of the black construction paper.
Cut out the middle of the fish leaving approximately 1/2" of the outside intact. Discard the center you just cut out.
Peel the backing paper off of the contact paper and stick your fish outline onto it (see picture below). Cut the excess contact paper off.
Cut a small circle out of black construction paper and stick it on the contact paper for the eye.
Cut a small curved shape out of black construction paper and stick it on the contact paper for a smile.
Cut tissue paper into 1 inch squares. Make sure to use a few different colors.
Stick the tissue paper onto the fish making sure to overlap the pieces.
Trim off any tissue paper that hangs over the black outline of the fish.
Hang up on a sunny window.
