Start by downloading the template and printing it out.

First, encourage your child to paint a paper plate with 1-2 thin coats of bright paint.

Next, guide your child to place the fish body template on the paper plate, trace it, and cut it out.

Now, position the stripes in the middle of the body, glue them on, then cut off the excess paper.

Glue the eye just to the left of the fish’s nose. Use a black marker to draw a small smile below the eye.
