My kids love to look at the fish whenever we visit a shop that sells them! I am convinced that between the free cookie at the bakery and a chance to look at the fish the kids look forward the grocery store more than almost anything!

They have been asking if we can get an aquarium, but I hesitate. I am solely responsible for the care of the hamster they begged for last year. Now, don't get me wrong, Hamish, the winter white hamster has brought me a lot of joy, but I am not looking to dive into the world of fish keeping!


To appeal to their interest and buy a little time, in hopes they move on from fish to something else before they talk me into buying a tank we made this incredibly easy fish tank craft! We used two sided tape and contact paper for this project, but you can use construction paper and glue if that is what you have on hand!



Supplies:
A piece of green card stock
A section of contact paper or a piece of blue cardstock 
2  or more colors of construction paper
scissors
googly eyes




Directions:

Cut your contact paper or blue cardstock to resemble a fish bowl.
Cut several fish shapes from your construction paper
Secure the fish inside the fish bowl with two-sided tape


Secure the eyes to the fish using two-sided tape




This was an easy activity for the kids to complete together. They needed a little help with the contact paper but overall did a great job smoothing it out. We proudly displayed this one on the fridge!
