Place the fish body template on the paper plate, trace, and cut it out.

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.

Take the top fin and glue it towards the back of the body, just above the tail fin.
