Find the Fish

Find the Fish craft

Kids are delighted when they try to find fish in these melted crayon crafts.

  • 1.

    What are your favorite fish to watch, catch, or eat? Find out about their sizes, body parts (head, fins, tail), colors, habits, and other characteristics.

  • 2.

    Remove paper wrappers from Crayola® Crayons. Place crayons in a zipper lock food storage bag and crush with your shoe. Or use a pencil sharpener to shave crayons.

  • 3.

    Close adult supervision is required to ensure safety. Choose a place to iron that is well ventilated. Cover the ironing area with a bed of recycled newspaper. Spread crayon pieces between two pieces of wax paper. Place a piece of white paper on top. Ask an adult to use a cool iron to melt the crayons. Let Cool.

    Can you find a fish design in the melted wax? With more crayons, draw a fish on the waxed paper. Cut out your fish with Crayola Scissors. Hang it where light can show through like stained glass.
