Paper Plate Fish
If you have never made your own paper plate fish before, they are super easy. Cut a triangle out of a paper plate and staple it to the plate to form the tail (see above). I cut a variety of construction paper squares and kids glued them on. I had some leftover sticker eyes from another project and the kids had great fun adding the eyes to their fish (one kid ended up with six eyes on their fish!).
Envelope puppets are one of my favorite projects because they are low-cost, easy, and come out with a great product. To make your own, seal an envelope and cut off about 3 1/2 inches at the end. If you use letter-sized envelopes you will be able to cut them in half. Today I made a variety of animal die cuts on our AccuCut die cut machine and put them out for kids to glue to their envelope. They could then decorate their animal with crayons.
I bought three supplies to make these necklaces:
- Animal Beads from Discount School Supply
- Jumbo Beads from Discount School Supply
- Tipped Lacing Yarn from Discount School Supply
