Using the fork as a stamp, paint the paper plate with tine marks. We found that going around the outer edge and working our way inward helped create the look we wanted for our blowfish.
Once the paint is dry, use scissors to cut fins out of construction paper. We cut ours into wide triangles and attached them to the back of the plate.
Use glue to add some fun googly eyes.
To create a mouth for your fish, use a black permanent marker.
Try creating a pufferfish with two different colored paints for even more fun! (We used construction paper to cute out a mouth for this one to help it stand out a bit more amid all the colors.)
This cute summer craft is fun to make and looks pretty hanging on the doors.
We used ours to help decorate for my son’s shark birthday party. The guests loved looking at them while playing all the shark games.
