Fish Tank Craft!

So what do you do on a snowy day??? CRAFT! YAY! About a week ago we got a pretty good bit of snow and our temps were in the single to below 0 range so we made Fish Tanks out of paper plates!

What you need:

  • 2 Paper plates per tank
  • your choice of paint colors
  • glitter
  • pipe cleaners
  • pom poms 
  • googly eyes
  • glue
  • other small craft supplies you want to use for rocks or any other decor! 
Paint and design your fish tank on one plate how ever you crafty heart desires! Then cut the bottom out of the second plate and glue it to the first plate upside down so it forms a "window" for your aquarium! It is a simple craft but so cute and the kids and i had so much fun talking about all the different animals that live in the sea while we were doing it! You could even go as far as getting sand / dirt from  outside and gluing it to the bottom for the sea floor... we would have but all our dirt is covered in snow.
                                                            Made by my 7 year old
                                                   Of course mommy had to make one too!
But nothing can compare to the magical art of my 2 year old :) most beautiful aquarium i have ever gazed into!

Hope you all enjoyed the craft!
