Here's what you need:
- Paper Plate
- Popsicle Stick or Straw
- Construction Paper
I like to start by painting the paper plate one solid colour. That way there is no white showing through. Some children may prefer to colour it in with crayons or markers. If you do decide to paint I would suggest painting it in the morning and then it should be dry after nap time.
Next is the fun part. Go crazy and decorate! For the first one I took crayons and drew lines down the side of the plate. The next one I glued on dots (made from a hole punch). The last one I decided to dip different round things in paint and stamp them on.
Now for the grown-up part. Take some scissors and cut out a piece of pie. The piece you have cut out is going to be the tail and the whole you made is now the mouth. Glue the tail in place at the back of the fish.
You could be finished here or you can continue to use your creativeness. I added teeth to one of mine and a fin to another. Another cool touch is to add a baby fish. One little girl who made this fish decided to make it a shark. You can really do just about anything.
