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.
