Fish Craft


You must admit that the titles I come up with for my posts are quite original.  I guess that’s as good as it’s going to get since I’m usually working on my blogs around midnight.

Anyhoo, today I am sharing with you a super-duper, easy-peasy craft that relates to the beach theme we are doing this week.

Here’s what you need:

  • Tissue paper
  • Contact paper cut into the shape of a fish

I cut up the tissue paper into some little squares so it would be a bit more manageable for Hailey’s little hands.

And now for the fun- tear up the tissue paper.  This is excellent for strengthening the muscles in the hands which are very important for those fine-motor skills.  (As a side note-  the marks you see on Hailey’s arms are my attempts at re-doing her tattoo’s that had faded away since our 4th of July celebration.  It just broke her heart that her tattoos were gone, so I did my best to re-do them.)

Stick the torn up tissue paper on the fish shaped contact paper. 

Add another piece of contact paper to hold all of the tissue paper in.  Add a cute little face.  And you have an adorable little fish.

You can display it on a window, or let your ornery toddler carry it around for the rest of the day.
