Tissue Paper Rainbow Fish

Sharing is caring!

I’m sure you’re already familiar with the picture book ‘Rainbow Fish?’

If not, it’s a really sweet book that’s established itself as a preschool classic.

The illustrations are stunning, inspiring this simple Tissue Paper Rainbow Fish.

Used as a book extension or stand alone craft idea for kids, it will not disappoint.

Young children will enjoy the process of cutting and sticking as they design their fish, making it a great craft for developing scissor and fine motor skills.

It’s simplicity and easy set up, will appeal to anyone crafting with a group of children.

Sound good?

Here’s what you need to get started!

Start by folding a piece of card in half, draw a fish shape (it doesn’t have to be perfect) and cut, ensuring the fold is included.

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
