Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

You can buy felt-topped ink daubers especially made for kid crafts, or you can do what we did: Borrow Gram’s bingo daubers!

What You Need: Two thin paper plates (we used 6″), craft or bingo daubers, large googly eye, glue

How You Make It: You can use the daubers before or after you cut and assemble the paper plate parts. Cut fins out of one paper plate and glue to other paper plate as shown, or however you’d like. Cut out triangle “mouth.” Glue on googly eye.

How You Make It: Cut wave-like notches along top edge of blue craft foam. Arrange 5 Popsicle (craft) sticks as shown so that they overlap one another in a fishbowl shape and glue the sticks together at their ends. (Make sure the Popsicle stick “frame” is smaller than the foam piece.) Trim blue foam piece so it’s slightly smaller than the craft stick frame. Cut tan cardstock about 1 inch high in a curvy shape for “sand” and glue to bottom of blue foam. Then glue the frame over the foam. Fill with foam fish, starfish, sea horses, whales and so on. Add googly eyes and you’re done!
