Crayola Create It Yourself

DIY Crafts & Art Projects for Kids and Adults

Spring Season

DIY Fish Tank

Using Crayola Model Magic, Washable Paint, Construction Paper, and Glue, you can create an amazing aquarium with fish you will never have to feed!

Supplies

Model Magic
Construction Paper
Crayola No. 2 Pencil
Blunt Tip Scissors
School Glue
Washable Kids' Paint
Paint Brush
Glass Jar with Cork Lid
Paper Clips

Instructions

  1. Paint the cork yellow – you do not have to paint the "top" of the cork, as the glass jar will sit lid side down in the end. Set aside to dry.
  2. Mold 2-3 fish out of different colors of Model Magic.
  3. Unbend paper clips into straight lines. Cut the paper clips if necessary, to make them different lengths.
  4. Stick paper clips into the bottom of the Model Magic fish. Then, stick paper clips into the bottom of the cork lid to secure.
  5. Draw wavy lines with a Crayola No. 2 Pencil onto a piece of Crayola Construction Paper. Cut the seaweed out with Crayola Scissors. Fold the bottom of the seaweed of the seaweed to create a tab. Apply a small amount of Crayola School Glue and attach to the bottom of the cork lid to surround the fish.
  6. Carefully place the jar upside-down on top of the cork.
  7. Paint a wavy of Washable Kids' Paint around the top of the jar to create "water."
