Paper Plate Fish
July 26th, 2010 by Craftylocks

So easy, so cute, and perfect for children’s own artistic fish interpretation.

I am always on the lookout for paper crafts for children that are simple to set up and give a great result like this paper plate fish. I love that there is no waste! plate-fish5

Cut a triangle out of one side of the paper plate for the mouth.


Glue it onto the other side to make the tail. As quick as that, your fishy shape is now ready for decoration.


We decorated our paper plate fish by dabbing some paint on. The little dabber pictured here is really handy, I have some more about them at Dabber for Applying Paint. First we dabbed on some green paint.


Then we dabbed on some blue paint. For the final touches our fish just needed a sprinkle of glitter and an eye and she was ready to swim away onto our wall.
