Craft fun: Make this cute paper plate rainbow fish

"The Rainbow Fish" is a gorgeous picture book that served as inspiration for this super cute paper plate fish craft.

Lost for fun and thrifty things to do with your children today? Why not help them make a Paper Plate Rainbow Fish? Your kiddies will love decorating their very own rainbow fish with sparkly scales.


We came across this great craft idea while surfing weekend activities for kids on Country Living.

What you’ll need

  • Paper plates
  • Googly eyes
  • Acrylic paint

How to make it

  • Have your child paint the bottom side of the paper plate and let it dry completely.
  • Cut out a triangle shape from the right side of the plate and glue this on the left side of the plate for the tail. The opening from the cut out will be the mouth. Next, Cut out 2 small fins from coloured paper and glue one to each side of the plate, and glue on a googly eye.
  • Using the different colours of paper, trace small round circles. You will need 22-25 of these for the fish scales. Cut the circles out and fold them in half.
  • Your child can use a Glue Stick to rub glue on one side and sprinkle with glitter.
