This one was really easy and fun. My son has moved it around his room several times because he is looking for the perfect location for it to reside.
You will need:
Two paper plates, paint, colored paper, sandpaper, string, glue & embellishments.
5. I didn’t take a picture of this, but we made our fish double sided and glued string between the pieces. That way the string is nicely hidden.
Once your pieces are dry, run a line of glue around the plate. My plates were fairly concave and there was a nice rim to them. The glue should go where the two plates are going to touch.
Lay your string in the line of glue. This includes the string the shapes are hanging from as well as a string to hang your mobile.
Layer your other plate on top, with what would be the bottom of the plates to the outside.
After the glue has dried, trim the excess string of the fish shapes so that it is nice and neat.
These were a lot of fun to make and super easy too. You can embellish the project any way your kids like. My son wanted to do googley eyes but nothing else. It would be fun to put some glitter paint on some of the details. But I have boys and googley eyes were as much as they wanted;)
