Step 2

Cut a triangular wedge from one plate to make a mouth and save that piece to become the tail. Use a second plate to cut out 2 fins and 2 eyes. Tape the fins to both side of the fish body and the tail to the back.

Step 3

Use lots of color to turn your plate into a rainbow fish with dot stampers or markers. Don’t forget to color behind the fins and on both sides!

Enjoy! You could also make baby fish using small paper side plates, add a stick at the bottom to make a hand puppet, or add a hole at the top and hang your fish from the ceiling!
