A bunch of our favorite blogging friends, including our long-time contributor here at 5 Minutes for Mom, Tonya Staab, got together to create this phenomenal book of crafts for kids.
To celebrate the book’s launch, Tonya is here today sharing her Paper Plate Fish Bowl Craft for Kids.
How to Make a Paper Plate Fish Bowl
Paper plate fish bowl tutorial
- White paper plate
- Watercolor paint
- Scrapbook paper
- Googly eyes
- Tools: glue, paintbrushes, pencil, and scissors
Cut a small semi-circle out of the top of the plate, turn it upside down and glue it to the bottom of the plate. Use the scissors to make the bottom edge straight.
Using watercolor paint and a paintbrush, paint your fish bowl with water.
Draw fish and seaweed on scrapbook paper and cut them out. Glue them onto your fish bowl. Add googly eyes to your fish with glue too.
Tip: What other sea creatures could you put in your fish bowl? How about a frog, starfish, or jellyfish?
