This fish takes just TWO FOLDS! Once the children have those two folds mastered they can make and ocean full of fish. Give them lots of different sizes of square paper to make a school of fish. The two folds only need to be approximately as marked in the pictures.
I was looking for something to work with the craft paper for a while.I think I found it! !!!!
Thank you very bery much.
Thanks for your comment Sandra – I have since corrected my post to include that the paper should be square. And irregular fish are by far the best – much more character. But if you really want regular ones, make a few for practice, they do not take long – and then they will make a real splash!
Hi thank you so much!!
Just a question, the paper must be a square? I try with a normal size paper A4 but doesn’t work. With a square paper works better but isn’t so regular like yours!
love this sweet fish idea, and great to see you! thanks so much for sharing on Craft Schooling Sunday!
I am so glad that you like this too. I was so excited with how simple these were to make:-).
This is great! My son just got goldfish and loves this project I just found a pattern for a felt stuffed goldfish too so it is a fishy day!
You cannot imagine how perfect this is for us right now. We just read Lissy’s Friends by Grace Lin, and I was looking for origami easy enough my four year old could join in. This is terrific!
