Paper Plate Fishbowl Craft

My daughter and I love making crafts together. I especially enjoy making handprints crafts because I can lock a little piece of my kiddos in time. One afternoon recently, she and I made a simple but fun paper plate fishbowl craft.


  • Paper plate
  • Blue inker
  • Orange paint
  • Cotton ball
  • Wiggly eye
  • Beans
  • Glue


  1. Cover all but the top two inches of the paper plate with the blue inker.
  2. Use a cotton ball to spread a thin layer of orange paint on your child’s hand.
  3. Press the orange handprint in the center of the plate with the fingers open.
  4. Wash the paint off your child’s hand.
  5. Glue a wiggly eye on the palm of the orange handprint.
  6. Glue beans under the orange handprint along the edge of the paper plate.
