Fishy crafts

DSCF0833 (2)

Last Friday in the library, during half term, we made underwater collages by sticking torn bits of coloured paper onto cardboard fish. Luckily, our brilliant volunteer, Ayshea, was there to help as it was so popular we had to run a second session later in the morning. It’s a really simple and fun technique you can apply to any theme.

All you need are:

  • some cardboard fish – 2 per child per hour (I used cereal boxes)
  • small torn pieces of coloured paper, especially patterned pieces, sorted into colours (weekend newspaper magazines are good)
  • PVA glue and paintbrushes (remember to apply glue onto the cardboard and then again over each piece as it’s stuck down)
  • googly eyes
  • blue poster paper for background
  • green paper for weed
  • white paper for bubbles (the children’s excellent suggestion)
