    Paper Plate Fish Craft

    I love using paper plates as part of crafts with my daughter. For our homeschool preschool lesson on fish last spring, she and I made an easy but fun paper plate fish craft.


    • Paper plate
    • Colored paper
    • Wiggle eye
    • Scissors
    • Glue


    1. Cut a triangle out of the paper plate.
    2. Glue the triangle to the opposite side of the paper plate.
    3. Tear the colored paper into small pieces.
    4. Glue the paper pieces onto the paper plate fish.
    5. Glue a wiggle eye on the paper plate fish.
