Simple crafts for kids are always the best and my girls  adored this craft.

It was amazing to see them immersed in their designs and my 6 year old cut the paper with such care and attention, leaving her really proud of her creation.

My 2 year old enjoyed the process of sticking and the ‘scales’ did end up everywhere.

Remember it’s all about the process not perfection!

I hope your kids have fun creating their own Tissue Paper Rainbow Fish
