Paper Plate Fish Craft

I am really excited about this paper plate fish craft, it is one I had been meaning to do for a long time. Plus it was also such a great craft to watch EC’s and YC’s creativity come out. To begin with I thought we would all probably end up with similar looking fish, but how wrong I was.

Make sure you follow my craft board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need:

  • Paper plates
  • Coloured paper
  • Black paint
  • Liquid chalk pens
  • Scissors
  • Glue

I painted the back of the paper plates black during BB’s lunchtime nap so that they would be ready for them when they got home from school.

Once homework was finished we popped BB in his ball bit next to the table and started to create our paper plate fish. At first EC didn’t want to join in, but he quickly changed his mind.

We used the liquid chalk pens to design our fish.

Next we cut out flippers and tails from the paper to stick on.

The finished products were absolutely amazing.

EC made one that was like a sole fish. You know the ones that live on the sea bed with both their eyes on top. He even gave it extra fake eyes so that predators would be scared off!

YC made hers to be more like a puffer fish. Where as I made mine a tropical one.

During this whole thing BB was trying very hard to get a hold of all the art supplies by pulling himself up and reaching over the side of the ball pit. I don’t think he is quite ready for this yet.
