This simple make is great for developing your child's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills as they paint and decorate the paper plate to create a beautiful fish. Encourage your child to be as imaginative as they like - they could use a whole range of colours and patterns and add extra decorations such as glitter and shiny stickers.
How to extend the magic
Why not make a little shoal of paper plate fish together - you could make different-sized fish using different-shaped plates. When you've finished, you could mount them on a big piece of blue card to create an aquarium scene. You could also cuddle up and enjoy a fishy tale together.
