Oh wow what a great project for kids craft for your little one for a mommy get together or pre-k or kindergarten class. Kids love fish and for them to design their own and name it they will be thrilled. Put it on their wall and add some bubbles. If you do not want to use the paint to not cause mess use printed plates and even googly eyes. Great project.

This is really easy. No need to paint. You can buy decorated paper plates from the grocery.

What cute, happy fish! These would make a fun decoration for a preschool pool party. Kids could paint white plates to one up with lots of colors or glue fun things on the plates to add personality. Best yet this craft requires few supplies so it is an easy to go project.
