    What can you do with recycled CDs? Here’s one idea. Figure out how the CD will become the body of a fish! Make several for a cool fish-school mobile.

    On white paper, use Crayola Twistables® to draw fish fins, eyes, and lips. Some tips to try: Use half circles and triangles for fins and hearts for lips. Color both sides of each part with vibrant colors and designs. Cut out the pieces with Crayola Scissors.

    On more paper, draw seaweed and a worm on a hook. Color both sides and cut them out. Use a Crayola Fine Line Marker to write fishy tongue twisters on the seaweed and the worm. How about these? Freshly fried flying fish flew fast. Selfish shellfish swim in the sea. Mrs. Smith’s fish sauce shop sells slurpy soup. Have fun and make up your own tongue twisters!

    Lay one recycled CD with the shiny side down and the label side up. Attach the top and bottom fins, lips, and seaweed to the CD with Crayola School Glue. Apply glue to the label side of the other CD. Lay it on top of the first CD so the paper pieces are sandwiched between the CDs.

    Carefully cut slits on the wide end of the side fins. Bend to separate the slits. Glue the smaller ends of the fins to the shiny sides of the CDs, covering the center holes.

    Glue an eye to each side. Attach the worm to the fish by gluing yarn from the fish’s bottom lip to the hook. Punch a hole in the top fin. Tie yarn or ribbon as a hanger. Your eye-catching fish will sparkle in the sun!
