Making a paperplate fish is easy and quick fun to do at home. What you will need is the following:
- 1 paper plate
- Tissue paper, shiny paper or construction paper that is in 1-inch squares or 1-inch circles
- An eye (can be one that you get at a craft store, or one that you create on your own via drawing or cutting it out of construction paper)
- Hole punch
First you will need to cut out a triangle that is roughly the size of a piece of pie. Then on the opposite side of the paper plate, take that "pie" shaped piece, you will want the "point" side to go a little bit behind the paper plate, and then staple the piece so that both pieces join together.
Next you will select various pieces of tissue paper, shiny paper or construction paper and glue them onto the paper plate. You will want to glue it all around so that your fish is nice and brightly colored. Next you will glue on the eye and lastly punch a hole at the top of the plate and thread string through the hole, so that you can easily hang your fish.
