Fish Paper Craft

Making fish paper craft is relatively easy provided the materials are available. The materials required for the crafting are obtained from the local stores or can be lent from an institution. In most cases, crafting supplies can be acquired at an inexpensive cost at one of the many craft sale points. Online arrangement can be made to have special deliveries at the door step.

Suppose you need to teach your students how make crafts, then you will find the following supplies necessary. Mainly, you will need Manila paper, cardboard and an adhesive tape.

When working with children, emphasis needs to be focused on giving detailed instructions. The procedure is as follows

* Cut out the paper to make a clearly shaped fish outline. The two pieces of paper should be of the same size. This is so that when glued together or taped they will have a compact edge. Put the two pieces of paper together and trim them so as to result in a symmetrical model. Glue the edges together and stuff the inside with some soft material until a bulge appears at the centre.

* Fins are the cut outs from the remaining paper. You can employ various designs suitable according to any species. Place them at the side of the fish until a fitting size is achieved. It is normal that you put two fins and a flipper at the top.

* Here is where most of creativity and imagination is needed. Coloring the fish artistically and to make it look real. Colored pencils or liquid ink can be used depending on which is available and the comfort of use. Watching a documentary on sea creatures can help put vivid color to the craft.

Fish do swim in water. One can create an illusion effect by attaching a string to its top and hanging it from the ceiling. You can have the children make similar models of different sizes and colors to add to the collection of already made fish crafts.

Another fish craft can be use of balloons. In this case, the materials needed are a felt pen, long balloons and a long pierce of string. The balloon is inflated partially and the air outlet closed. The balloon is then twisted and loosely tied at one end to form the fish's head and at the other rear end to form the tail. Small and light pieces of paper can be stuck at the sides to form the fins. You can draw or stick a shiny button to serve as its eye.
