Paper plate goldfish craft

You will need:

Gold paper plate (or a white plate painted gold)
Orange tissue paper
Glues eye
Wiggle eye
Sticky tape (optional)


Cut a triangle from the paper plate.

Stick the triangle to the back of the plate to be the fish's tail. We weren't very patient so needed a bit of sticky tape to help it stay!

Cut lots of small semi-circles from the tissue paper and glue to the body of the fish for his scales.

Add a wiggle eye and your fish is ready to swim!
