Father’s Day Fish Craft

Kitchen Tool Fish Craft for Father’s Day

  1. Grab Tools

    Grab a few spatulas, potato mashers and forks. Pour some different coloured paints on a paper plate.

  2. Fish

    Cut out the shape of a fish and a fin from a sheet of white printer paper.

  3. Paint

    Use a small amount of painter’s tape to secure the fish to the table. Let your toddler decorate the fish using all the kitchen utensils.

  4. Eye

    Once your toddler is done painting, have them stick the fin on to the middle of the fish. Then stick a googly eye on the fish’s head. Set the fish aside to dry.

  5. Decorate the Card

    While you wait for the fish to dry. Take a piece of construction paper and have your toddler use the same utensils to decorate the front of the card with green seaweed and coral.

  6. Make the Card

    Once everything is dry, fold the construction paper in half to create a card. Use glue to secure the fish to the front of the card.
