Paper Plate Fish Craft

Our paper plate fish craft is a fun, easy craft made with materials you most likely already have. All you need is a couple paper plates, some paint and glue and a great imagination and you have a great animal craft that is easy enough for a toddler to do. Let your children personalize their fish anyway they want - add polka-dots, stripes, or even smiley faces!

What you'll need:

  • Paper plates
  • Yellow, blue and purple paint
  • Paint brush
  • 1 googly eye
  • Scissors
  • Glue
How to make your Paper Plate Fish Craft
  • Cut a small wedge shape out of a paper plate to create a mouth.
  • Turn the plate upside down and paint the backside yellow.
  • Cut a banana shaped piece from the rim of another paper plate to create a tail. Paint this piece blue/purple.
  • When the pieces are dry glue the tail piece in place.
  • Glue a googly eye above the mouth.
