Watercolor Paper Plate Fish Craft
- paper plates
- white crayon
- watercolor paint
- paint brush
- glue stick
- Use the white crayon to draw a fish design on the paper plate. Make sure you color in a circle for the eye and we like to draw a triangle where the mouth will be.
- Also draw in wavy fish scales with the white crayon.
- It is a white crayon on a white paper plate, so part of the fun of this process is the surprise of what you made. But if you need to see the design you’re drawing, simply angle the plate slightly and the crayon will pop against the light.
- Once the design is drawn, get your watercolors ready. Fill a cup with water and begin to paint your fish in your choice of watercolors.
- Continue painting and blending the colors until your fish is completely.
- Let the watercolors dry completely.
- Then, when the paint is dry, cut out the triangle mouth.
- Use that triangle to glue to the back of the fish for the tail.
- Now your super colorful fish are ready to swim!
