Paper Plate Porthole

images

I love this craft for kids! It would be so cute for a classroom! Imagine all the ‘schools’ of fish!!

For each porthole, you’ll need:

  • 2 paper plates
  • several goldfish crackers
  • 8 cheerios
  • craft/school glue
  • markers for the grass (or silk grasses)
  • grey paint
  • blue cellophane
  1. Cut a circle out of one plate.
  2. Glue cheerios around the hole. Let dry.
  3. Draw grasses, then glue fish onto other plate. Let dry.
  4. Paint the cheerio plate grey, let dry.
  5. Tape cellophane into underside of cheerio plate. Glue the plates together.
