Fish are such interesting creatures! We enjoy their amazing colors and learning more about them. We wanted to make some fish so we decided to go big with these giant stuffed fish!

Start with:

  • Packing Paper or Large Paper Bags
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Old Newspapers or Magazine Pages
  • Cardstock

Create it!

Step 1: Cut two identical fish body shapes from paper grocery bags.

Step 2: Paint the fish body and allow to dry.

Step 3: From leftover paper grocery bags, cut fin shapes.

Step 4: Paint fins and allow to dry.

Step 5: Glue fins to one side of the fish body.

Step 6: Glue fish tails together and glue half of the body together.

Step 7: Crumple old newspapers or magazine pages and place inside fish body.

Step 8: Finish gluing the rest of the fish body pieces together.

Step 9: Cut eye shapes from cardstock and glue to fish.

These giant 3D fish would make really fun birthday party decorations. Or, mount to cardboard for a fun faux fish wall hanging!
