Kids love to play or love to watch fish tanks, aquarium and adults love to eat fish! Before we get into craft work, I would like to take you through some fun facts. We all know that dinosaurs lived on our earth before humans exist and it gets destroyed by the action of nature. Even at that time fish exist on our earth! Though jellyfish, and starfish bear fish in their names, they aren’t fish in real. Jellyfish are classified under invertebrates and starfish are under echinoderm. Can you breathe underwater? No, isn’t it? it’s because our(human) lungs are not designed to extract oxygen from water and fish can. Fish uses their gills to breathe in the water. That’s it, I had for you, now take a look at every craft ideas post which are designed for kids and why not if you are an adult you too can watch and try.

DIY Fish Craft With Cardboard Paper

Fish Cardboard Crafts For Kids DIY Fish Craft With Cardboard Paper

Image Source/Tutorial: Artanddesigner


Materials required: CD, paints, cutter and cardboard.

Difficulty level: Moderate
Description: This reminds me of my old memories because people moved onto pen drives and mostly CDs got vanished. When I was a child, there weren’t any pen drives or smart TVs or OTTs. So my home was full of CDs and I don’t have any idea to recycle those CDs too. I saved those for a long time and then I threw them away. If you have CDs at your home, recycle them into these kinds of crafts and your child(next generation) gets to know our olden days and lifestyle through this. Use CD as the fish body and cut the cardboard in the wing and tail shape of the fish. Paint them and paste that with the CD. Add eyes and mouth for the fish. That’s it! we are done with the craft.

Image Source/Tutorial: Easy Craft Hacker

Materials required: Cardboard, pebbles, fish and stone printout, a few small plants, oyster and white bead, transparent string, designing tape, scissors, glue and green paper.

Difficulty level: Moderate
Description: This looks exactly like a real fish tank, isn’t it? When I look at this I thought it was a real one. The process to make this is also simple and easy. If you love to buy fish tanks but don’t have time to maintain them (cleaning often) then try this craft whenever you feel free and need relaxation. The only difference is you can see the beauty of the fish diving in the water in the real tank. Cut the cardboard in a specific measurement to get it beautifully. In the base cardboard, paste the printed stone image and green paper into the background cardboard. Now with the glue, join them all together as shown in the above image. For front and side cardboard use the transparent sheet to get an inside view. Add a few pebbles, plants, oysters and a white bead inside the tank. Now paste the transparent sheet into the small fish printout and cut them separately. Attach a thin string to the backside of the fish, and secure it with tape. Do this for all fishes and glue some fishes on the background green frame. Glue those thin strings in the top cardboard. You may get a clear understanding from this but a video link is also given, if you want to watch it then you can go ahead.

Difficulty level: Easy
Description: This is also fish cardboard but the decorative item and the colours used here differentiate it from other crafts. You can download the fish template online or if you are okay, you can draw and cut the fish. Use dark colour paints to make it more attractive.

Lastly, place googly eyes and elbow pasta on the mouth side. Ta-Da! you are now done with the craft.
