Project TypeMake a Project
- 4 wooden clothespins
- Colorful scrapbook paper
- Fish pattern
- 4 googly eyes
- Hot glue gun (you can also use white craft glue)
NOTE: I glued my clothespins so that the fish mouths would remain open for the photographs. This is a fun toy that your kids can play with. They can open and close the mouth by squeezing the clothespin open and closed.
Print the patterns and use them to cut fish from scrapbook paper.
Cut each fish in half horizontally, from tail to nose.
Lay clothespins on their sides. Glue the top half of the fish to the upper half of the clothespin, and glue the bottom half of the fish to the lower half of the clothespin.
Glue on the googly eyes.
