Get into the swim of things by researching fish habitats and food sources and make a mobile.
Outline large fish shapes on paper with a Crayola® Marker. Make them fascinating, imaginary, or real. Draw several different fish.
Place each paper with drawings on top of a second sheet of paper. Cut out the fish shapes with Crayola Scissors, holding the papers together, so you get two of each fish.
Use Crayola Crayons or Markers to add colorful scales, fins, and eyes to the fronts and backs of your fish.
Staple your matching fish pieces together (colored parts out), closing each shape about 2/3 of the way around the outside.
Tear small strips of newspaper for stuffing. Crinkle up the pieces a bit, and stuff them inside the fish for a 3-D effect. Staple the rest of the fish closed, to keep the newspaper inside.
Decorate the top of a paper plate like the ocean, lake, or river. With a pen (ask an adult to help), punch a small hole in the center of the paper plate. Then use the hole puncher to punch a hole for each fish all around the plate.
Tuck a piece of yarn through the center hole and tape it to the front of your plate. You will use this yarn to hang your mobile from the ceiling.
Cut various lengths of yarn and tape one end of each piece to the top of a fish.
Turn your paper plate up with the design facing you. Tuck the other end of each piece of yarn (attached to a fish) through a hole in the paper plate and secure with tape to the back of the plate.
Hang the finished mobile over your bed or some other place where you can enjoy it.
