Your kid is asking you to make another sea-themed handicraft? Golden fish craft is here to fulfill this wish! Prepare to do a lot of cutting and gluing – the results are worth it!
Materials For Golden Fish Craft
- Colored paper (blue, yellow, green, golden or whatever color you want the fish to be);
- Black marker;
- Ruler or a template to draw squares.
Cut out squares of the golden paper: these will be fishes. Square size is custom: 10×10 cm is big enough.
Fold the squares to form triangles.
Cut out the fish body out of the triangle. Once you unfold it, you will see a fish body. Now, cut the figures by 3/4 into 6 lines.
Start gluing the stripes and cross them starting from the middle so that to form a fish tail. The picture below explains how to do it:
We’re on the finish line. Take the black marker to draw goldfish eyes.
Don’t forget to add some details to the sea where your goldfish live: put some seaweed, sea stars, or shells.
Praise your kid for chair-glue patience! It’s worth its weight in gold!
