Glam Guppies


"Fish are friends, not food!" Not only are the adorable, nautical creatures friends, but they're also the best kind of friends, free ones! Glam Guppies are toilet paper roll crafts, which means that the materials can be found right in your own house. You don't have to run to the store with your allowance to make these ocean crafts for preschool kids. Make these cute fish crafts for kids to learn about the magical world of the deep blue sea and to bring that "whole new world" home with you.


  • 3 cardboard toilet paper tubes
  • White craft glue
  • Paint: green, light blue, purple
  • Scissors
  • Self-adhesive gems
  • 3 large googly eyes


  1. Flatten each cardboard tube. Line the inside with some glue and press them tightly together with your hands. Place a heavy object on top of each one to help them stay closed while the glue takes hold.


  2. Paint each flattened tube, one blue, one green, and one purple. 


  3. Cut on a diagonal on each side (see photo) to create the head. Save the pieces you cut off for the tail. Use scissors to trim out a mouth.


  4. Carefully open the back end of the fish and insert the two cut pieces creating the tail. Press back together. 


  5. Glue on eyes and decorate with self-stick gems.

My twin (boy & girl) 5 1/2 year old grandchilden and I made a dozen or so of the these fish. We all had so much fun making them. Noah keeps his in his room but Savannah keeps her fish in a special bag and they sleep with her each night! We do so very many of the crafts on your site! Thank you!

Hi jacqu10300! I'm so glad your little grandchildren love this craft. Thanks so much for your kind words!

What about rocketfish. Reminds me a bit of a rocket and a fish at the same time. Love your ideas.

I'm thinking school of bling!

These are sooo cute!! "Glitter fish" is my suggestion for a name. Susie--

I choose Birthday Party Fish

Glam Guppies

Everyone's ideas are wonderful, but BIZZYBEE you won! Your name "Glam Guppies" will forever identify these adorable fish!
