Easy Origami Paper Fish For Kids
- Colored Paper Sheets
- Colored Pens (Black And White)
- Sketch Pens (Black, Orange, Yellow, Brown, And Pink)
- Googly Eyes
- Brown-Colored Super Clay
Step 1: Drawing A Water Plant
Begin this craft by taking a blue paper sheet as the base for this craft, a green paper sheet, and a black sketch pen. Using the sketch pen, draw a wavy water leaf plant over the green sheet, and using a black pen, make the slanting lined veins of the leafy plant on both sides of it.
Step 2: Cutting Out The Plant
Using scissors, cut out your drawn water plant along the boundary of it.
Step 3: Pasting The Water Plants
Make and cut out more wavy water plants from the green paper sheet. Now, using glue, paste 2-2 water plants on the sides of the base at the bottom as shown in the image.
Step 4: Pasting More Water Plants
Again, cut out 3 more wavy water plants of different textures as shown in the image, and using glue paste the 2 in the middle of the base at the bottom by leaving a little space from the end. Paste the other water plant on the right side along the already pasted ones.
Step 5: Making The Ground
Take a brown-colored super clay and make a long thick roll of it. Place it at the bottom of the base making a little loop in the middle and press the roll to flatten it. This will become the ground underwater.
Step 6: Detailing The Ground
Take a brown sketch pen and make random dots over the clay ground basically on the upper part of it.
Step 7: Folding A Paper Square
Take an orange and yellow colored small paper square. Fold the orange square’s corner to its opposite one and make a crease. You will obtain a triangle.
Step 8: Cutting The Triangle
Using scissors, cut the triangle into 2 further smaller triangles from the middle as shown in the image.
Step 9: Pasting A Smaller Triangle
Paste a smaller triangle over the left top of the base using glue. Make sure to paste the triangle so that the perpendicular sides are below and on the right.
Step 10: Pasting A Yellow Triangle
In the same way, you created and pasted the orange triangle, paste a yellow triangle just beneath the orange one to make it look like a mirror image of the orange one. These 2 triangles will all together form the body of a fish.
Step 11: Making The Tail of The Fish
For the tail, cut out further 2 smaller triangles from the yellow and orange paper. Now, stick these 2 in the same way you pasted the larger ones, behind them. This will be the tail of the fish.
Step 12: Making The Eye Of The Fish
Paste a googly eye on the body of the fish at the front of the orange triangle using glue.
Step 13: Detailing The Fish
Using an orange sketch pen, make 3-3 dots on the yellow and orange triangle of the fish’s body. Also, from the training of the tail make thick strokes on the corner of it.
Step 14: Making More Fish And Detailing Them
Following the same, make 2 more triangular fish, one with a dark pink and light pink combination and the other with a yellow and lime combination. Detail these fish using the pink and yellow sketch pen by making pink curved lines on the pink fish’s body and yellow triangles on the yellow fish’s body.

For the last step, draw bubbles on the base using a white pen as shown in the image.
